Anonymous donors give PPE masks to Harrison FD

FD can use the masks during training and practice during the pandemic

Who are those masked people?

The Harrison Hot Springs Fire Department was recently gifted with protective face masks to help keep them safe during COVID-19. Two anonymous community supporters made masks for each member of the fire department. A source told the Observer that the masks were of excellent quality and the members were so pleased to receive them.

The masks will allow the firefighters to increase the safety of training and practice as they serve the community.

“It’s an excellent example of true community spirit and generosity during difficult times,” the tipster said.
