Resources available to find PPE

One key result from the recent Farm, Food and Agribusiness COVID-19 Impact Survey indicated that finding personal protection equipment to protect or guard against the COVID-19 virus has been difficult, whether for an individual’s use or that of ag business operations.

Ohio Farm Bureau wants to provide the following resources that may be useful.

  • The Ohio Manufacturers Association and its partners have launched a website to help find PPE sellers. This website is like a “trading post,” facilitating contact between PPE makers and sellers and prospective buyers
  • Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has created a PPE Exchange dashboard that offers a place for buyers and sellers in the private sector to connect. FEMA does not endorse any vendors, and users enter their own information and update as needed.
