Dear residents and businesses of Prescott and Russell, do you have extra personal protective equipment you would be willing to donate to help protect your front-line paramedics? With the growing COVID-19 pandemic, the supply of these important items is getting low. Access to new stock has been difficult and back orders have not started to come in yet. Our current stock is still at an acceptable level, but we anticipate an increase in use within the next few weeks.

We are looking for the following items:

  • N95 masks
  • Surgical masks
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Face shields
  • Surgical gowns
  • Non-latex gloves

Anything you can donate to ensure that your paramedics remain protected during this crisis would be greatly appreciated. Please communicate with the UCPR Emergency Services. Call 613-880-7180 during business hours or send an e-mail 24 hours a day. We will arrange for the safe pickup of any stock at your point of contact.

Thank you kindly for your help!
