Northwest River Supplies in Moscow is shifting a portion of its operation to distribute medical safety equipment in response to the coronavirus pandemic. NRS will provide personal protective equipment to medical personnel and first responders.
The company has arranged urgent air-freight shipment of 30,000 respirator masks which will be distributed from its warehouse in Moscow. NRS is also sourcing protective goggles, surgical masks and suits along with additional respirators.
The company plans to fulfill requests from hospitals and agencies in Idaho and the Northwest initially but will distribute more broadly as supplies allow. NRS will donate PPE equipment to the Moscow Volunteer Fire Department and will offer medical facilities fair-market pricing.
The global company in Moscow makes paddlesports equipment and apparel.
