Information about COVID-19 is changing rapidly that’s why it is important that first responders (including firefighters, EMT’s and paramedics) are prepared as they encounter new cases and try to keep the general public and themselves safe. This may mean they have to adjust their regular operations and standards in order to effectively allocate resources in the face of overwhelming demand due to the pandemic. We talked with several departments across the country about how they are combating the spread of the Coronavirus, as restrictions ease in many states across the country.
With so much uncertainty in the world today as a result of COVID-19, and the way things keep changing every day, HAIX® has been closely monitoring directives from local, state and federal governmental entities and public health officials in order to adapt our daily operations and how we do business. As a manufacturer/distributor of personal protective footwear to law enforcement, public safety personnel, and first responders, HAIX® falls under the Department of Homeland Security definition of essential critical infrastructure workforce.
