The Tidewater EMS Council (TEMS) has received a very limited supply of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) from the Strategic National Stockpile. This inventory is to be distributed to those licensed EMS agencies needing PPE to continue to evaluate and treat suspected COVID-19 patients. Designated Emergency Response Agencies will receive first priority and non-DERA agencies will be reviewed. The SNS distribution of PPE at TEMS will not be able to meet all of the requests from TEMS agencies. TEMS will consider the region’s needs as a whole in processing PPE Emergency Supply requests, so that resources can be distributed based on areas of greatest need and maximum impact.


I am authorized by my agency to complete this survey on behalf of the organization and have secured appropriate approval.

I understand that this request does not guarantee that I will receive the amount requested. Supplies will be distributed based on a variety of factors, including potential risk for exposure, critical need, and supply availability. We will make every effort to distribute emergency supplies equitably. There is a national shortage of personal protective equipment. We recommend reviewing our website for CDC recommendations on extended use of PPE and alternatives considerations in crisis.
