Many Michigan broadcasters have completed the MAB survey regarding the distribution of the anxiously anticipated FEMA cotton washable masks. At this time the MAB has not received any masks to distribute. Once they are received we will contact everyone that has completed the survey available at this link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/BJGT8RT
The NAB, who is coordinating the effort with the states informs us that they check daily with FEMA, but are receiving no information about when the masks will be sent. We have heard that broadcasters were moved down in priority behind law enforcement and other first-responders.
While we wait, if stations need to do something now, the Michigan Chamber of Commerce provided a list of vendors in Michigan providing Personal Protection Equipment for purchase.
