The Armstrong Spallumcheen Chamber of Commerce is reaching out to manufacturers who could help meet Canada’s need for increased medical supplies.
In a notice to its members, echoing the Government of Canada’s call to action, the chamber asked if businesses have equipment or facilities that can be rapidly re-tooled to meet medical needs.
“Including for personal protective equipment (PPE) such as gloves, masks and surgical gowns; sanitizers; wipes; ventilators and other medical equipment and supplies,” the notice reads.
Businesses with skilled workers who are able to respond or be available to work under the current circumstances amid COVID-19 is also a requirement.
“We are stronger when we work together,” the notice said.
A short summary of what businesses can offer can be emailed to email@example.com.
“The plan to mobilize industry to fight COVID-19 directly supports businesses to rapidly scale up production or re-tool their manufacturing lines to develop products made in Canada that will help in the fight against COVID-19,” the federal government said in its call to action.
“Thank you for your commitment to the health of Canada and Canadians.”
