Niagara County Legislator Dave Godfrey on Tuesday announced the Niagara County Department of Emergency Services will hold its first drive-thru event to provide free masks and small bottles of hand sanitizer to the general public.
“As our economy continues to reopen and we approach phase four, we cannot stress enough how important it is for the general public to continue taking the necessary safety precautions against COVID-19,” said Godfrey, chairman of the community safety and security committee. “Thanks to the great work of our Emergency Services team in procuring supplies from the state, we can help facilitate that by providing free masks and sanitizer.”
The drive-thru will be held Thursday, June 25, at the Public Safety Training Facility, 5574 Niagara St. Ext., Lockport. The event begins at 9 a.m. and will go until 3 p.m. – or as long as supplies last. No preregistration is necessary as supplies will be handed out on a first-come, first-served basis.
“Our staff will be handing out bags with prepackaged sanitizer and masks and, I must stress, there is a one bag per carload limit,” said Jonathan Schultz, the Emergency Services director. “This is a great opportunity to get the supplies to keep your family safe, so please spread the word to your family and friends.”
