Barrie Fire and Emergency Service receive face shield donation to help continue life-saving work

just under 150 sturdy, reusable face shields were donated

Even before retail, restaurants, and other services began to reopen, first responders were putting their health on the line in order to ensure the safety of those in our community and they continue to do so every single day.

A donation from Molded Precision Components (MPC) will help first responders from Barrie Fire and Emergency Service continue to serve the community while keeping them (and the people they help) protected from Covid-19.
