In an effort to assist health care and emergency response workers in the community facing critical shortages of personal protective equipment (PPE), St. Clair County Community College faculty and staff reviewed supplies to determine items on hand that may be useful to the county’s health care and emergency response workers.
They donated and delivered more than 125 gowns and Tyvek suits, 170 boxes of gloves, 700 masks and various other protective equipment to the St. Clair County Emergency Management Response Team for distribution.
“The donations from the college were very helpful,” said Justin Westmiller, emergency management director of St. Clair County. “We kept some of it, but most was given to hospitals, EMS and fire departments.”
If you are looking to donate supplies or other resources to help emergency and health care workers, the Emergency Management Response Team is accepting donations at three locations.
“If anyone wants to donate, there are three locations,” said Westmiller. “at the main entrances of Marysville High School, Port Huron Northern and Port Huron High School.”
