Helping protect the ones who protect

It became evident in late March that many of Montana’s front line employers were unable to access Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) for their workers. Knowing that, and with our commitment to build a safer Montana, we created the COVID-19  PPE grant program.

The grants were available to policyholders with the most vulnerable workers including firefighters, EMTs, police, physician, dental and physical therapy offices, nursing homes, grocery and drug stores, social services organizations, and group homes.

“It’s in our mission and vision to partner with Montana businesses and their workers to create a safe environment for them,” said MSF President and CEO, Laurence Hubbard. “This has never been more important than during this pandemic.”

Qualifying policyholders completed an application with the stated number of PPE requested and the necessity of the items. There was no cost for the PPE.

The response was overwhelming. MSF successfully filled the majority of the requests.  In the end, our employees packed and shipped 506 boxes of PPE to 453 frontline policyholders and their employees. This included 30,000 KN95 masks, 156,000 tri-fold masks, and 100 thermometers.
