Texas A&M Forest Service helping with COVID-19 relief

A team from the Texas A&M Forest Service has been working every day since March 16, including weekends, to help organize and prepare shipments of personal protective equipment and other COVID-19 outbreak response items at a Texas warehouse.

The 10-member TFS crew has been working in conjunction with the Texas Division of Emergency Management to process donations, track items and prepare shipments to fulfill orders statewide.  

Crews are now working 24-hour shifts to be available for needed items for the COVID-19 response. They continue to receive personal protective equipment to put into inventory, and the operation is now prepared to ship this equipment to fulfill orders across the state as requested.
