GEORGIA — Gov. Brian Kemp announced Friday a significant contribution of personal protective equipment from Cisco Systems, Inc. to Georgia’s fight against coronavirus. The Georgia Emergency Management and Homeland Security Agency received a donation of 330,000 N-95 masks from Cisco on Wednesday. The donation was a welcome contribution to the state’s supply of personal protective equipment for medical workers and first responders.
“American businesses like Cisco continue to step forward and contribute to the fight against the coronavirus with generous donations of supplies,” Kemp said. “These N-95 masks will help supplement Georgia’s supply and allow us to distribute more protective gear where it’s needed most – to those workers on the front lines of our hospitals and nursing homes, and to our first responders who are helping keep Georgia safe.”
Cisco’s donation is one of several corporate donations received by Georgia in the past two weeks.
“The first responders at the forefront of the pandemic are true heroes risking their lives to care for those in need during this challenging time,” Cisco Chairman and CEO Chuck Robbins said. “I am grateful to all of Georgia’s first responders and Cisco is committed to supporting them by providing them with the equipment they need to keep themselves and their families safe.”
The support of private companies is helping ensure needed supplies are available for distribution. Georgia Emergency Management and Homeland Security Agency is continuing to source PPE and other medical supplies to support Georgia medical facilities and first responders.
Companies interested in donating supplies can make arrangements through the Georgia Emergency Management and Homeland Security Agency Vendor Portal Page.
