BERKLEY – Office of Emergency Medical Services Region V receives FEMA grant and distributes 10,000 masks and isolation gowns to seventy-seven EMS transporting agencies. The Berkley CERT team in conjunction with The Berkley Fire Department hosts a PPE distribution center. A “drive through” style pick up station was made so volunteers and the departments who received the items can limit exposure and maintain social distance.
Everything ran smoothly and departments received the PPE to help protect themselves and the patients they transport against this pandemic. As of March 29th, 2020 there are 4,955 confirmed cases in Massachusetts. For up to date information please visit the MASS.GOV website.
