Acura of Peoria Donates N95 Masks to First Responders
PHOENIX, May 22, 2020 (Newswire.com) - Arizona dealership, Acura of Peoria, is dedicated to doing what they can to support the community during the global coronavirus pandemic. In particular, the store is on a mission to help workers on the front line, who do essential jobs that keep us protected.
In their ongoing efforts to support the City of Peoria’s first responders, the dealership donated 300 N95 masks to local firefighters and EMTs on Monday, May 18. N95 masks are an important piece of protective wear, and they’ve been harder and harder to come by.
The masks offer a tight fit that can pass a medical fit test, and they are designed to minimize exposure to microscopic aerosols—filtering out at least 95% of airborne particles. N95 masks have also been rigorously tested and evaluated by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH).
“In these unprecedented times, it’s important for us to have each other’s backs, so Acura of Peoria is proud to support our local heroes. We hope our donation has a long-lasting impact on the safety of those who safeguard us,” said General Manager Brijen Dave.
This donation follows other efforts made by Acura of Peoria to protect front-line workers, including an event held in April where employees provided free vehicle sanitization services to local Peoria police officers.
