Volunteer fire companies in the Greater Danbury area are usually the ones providing help to the community, but now they're asking for help from the community. Stony Hill Volunteer Fire Company officials say they have a very limited supply of surgical and N95 masks for emergency responders.
New protocols are requiring all responders and patients to be wearing a mask, regardless of illness, when transporting to Danbury Hospital.
Brookfield Volunteer Fire Department and New Fairfield Volunteer Fire Department are also asking for help.
Anyone with any type of surgical or N95 masks that are willing to donate, or has the ability to make masks, is asked to contact the Volunteer Fire Companies. Lysol, Clorox wipes, sanitizer, disinfectants are also all greatly appreciated.
