FEMA has designated quantities of free PPE face masks for broadcasters in each state. They will come to the MAB. We are working on a distribution plan to get them out to you for your employees. No arrival date is know yet and we are not certain of the quantity we’ll be receiving. We have been told there will be thousands of them that are designated for stations to distribute to their employees, many of whom must leave their home and office for their jobs and work with the general public. Some broadcasters have to work in close proximity to other employees due to the nature of their jobs. FEMA is concerned that broadcasters remain safe, while fulfilling their roll as public safety communicator.
General Managers will receive an order survey next week.
