“We applaud the state for establishing a central repository to receive critical supplies and will work closely with them moving forward. And we hope today’s donation will alert and inspire others to review their storage and supply chain. The need for critical protective equipment is tremendous and long-lasting and every bit of supply helps in this fight to protect and save lives,” continued Izzo.
The global coronavirus pandemic has created a rapidly increasing demand for medical equipment, including respirator masks. The masks are part of PSEG’s own inventory of emergency supplies. PSEG also has ensured that its employees, who are essential to powering the state, have the appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) they need to respond to emergency situations. Our employees also have been trained in social distancing and other protective measures related to the coronavirus.
