Algoma Rescue on the lookout for emergency supplies

City of Algoma EMS Captain Kelly Koss says the usual suppliers for personal protective equipment saw stocks dry up about a month ago, so the department is looking to find goggles, gowns, and masks through alternative means. Algoma Rescue is asking residents and businesses that have been deemed non-essential to donate what they can to improve preparedness for a potential infection locally. Koss says protocols are changing too, from dispatchers to hospital emergency rooms.


EMS is required to give hospitals advanced warnings about potential coronavirus cases as well. If you have equipment that you can spare, the contact information for Captain Koss is as follows: (920)255-2969 or
