N-95 Masks Donated to Naval Air Station Pensacola (FL) Fire Department

An employee of the Navy Exchange Service Command (NEXCOM) discovered N-95 masks in the maintenance supply room and donated them to Naval Air Station (NAS) Pensacola, reports DVIDS.

Fire Chief Daniel Chiappetta picked up all 170 N-95 masks. Later, 70 more N-95 masks were located by the SEDC and were also transferred to the NAS Pensacola Fire Department.

N-95 masks are not required for wear at NEXCOM’s SEDC facility and will be replaced by high quality surgical-type masks that are available in the commercial supply system.
