Lieutenant Gordon McCraw, the Tillamook County Emergency Manager and the County’s COVID-19 response Incident Commander recently received 5,000 KN95 masks via Oregon Emergency Management, through an initiative with Business Oregon. These masks are for distribution to employees of small businesses, businesses with 50 employees or less.
Lt McCraw said, “I am thrilled to partner with the Tillamook County Library to get these masks out to our small businesses!”
With the assistance of Clatsop County Emergency Management, Tillamook County was afforded access to an online ordering system. Businesses can go to the website to place their order:
On this website they can answer a few questions which includes how many masks they need.
Lt McCraw explained, “Each Monday at 3:00pm we will get a report on the requests. Each Wednesday, between noon and 5:00pm, the business representative can drive though the library to receive their distribution. The pickup sites include the Library branches in Manzanita, Tillamook, and Pacific City.”
He also explained that supplies are limited to the 5000 masks so asked that businesses only order what they need for their employees so that all small business employees have the opportunity to get one.
If you have any questions you can call Lt McCraw at 503-842-3412.
