RV manufacturers and suppliers are continuing to step up in the face of the coronavirus pandemic, donating masks and equipment to front-line medical staff.
REV Recreation Group, manufacturer of Fleetwood RV, Holiday Rambler and American Coach motorhomes, announced this week it donated several boxes of N-95 masks to the staff at Adams Memorial Hospital in Decatur, Indiana.
Kevin Wellman, Director of Emergency Medical Services at the hospital, thanked REV Recreation Group for its support.
“The masks are crucial at this time and very much appreciated as the hospital prepares for the apex of COVID-19,” Wellman said. “Per CDC guidelines, if the N-95 masks are not visibly soiled or broken down, clinicians may wear the masks up to five times.”
Hospital representatives and REV Recreation Group Associates met in person to formally accept the donation.
“Our top priority is to ensure the safety of our team, but with our production temporarily suspended, we have the opportunity to help keep our community safe,” said Bill Reith, Vice President and General Manager, REV Recreation Group. “With the widespread shortage of PPE, our team, along with our paint supplier Rollie Williams, is delighted to donate a supply of N-95 masks to our local Adams Memorial Hospital. We are truly grateful to all the health care workers who are serving at the frontlines, risking their lives to save others in the fight against this pandemic.”
