COMMUNITY DONATES 200 3D FACE MASKS IN 3 DAYS AFTER POLICE PLEA
Each 3D Mask Takes 2 ½ Hours to Print
PROVO, Utah (March 30, 2020) — A tweet from Provo Police Department requesting the community’s help printing 3D masks has reached more than 120,000 and, most importantly, has generated 200 masks—and all since Friday afternoon
“I am amazed with the help we’ve received in such a short time,” said Sgt. Nisha King. “The community’s generosity is a reminder of why we work for Provo. This is not just a job, for any of us, this is the community we choose to put our lives on the line to protect. The fact that our community wants to make sure we’re protected while we protect them makes me speechless.”
On Friday, March 27, Provo Police, in partnership with the Utah County Sheriff’s Office, Springville Police Department, BYU, UVU and Nebo School District, sent a tweet requesting help with the production of 3D masks to assists our officers and firefighters to stay safe while still out serving our community.
“The need is great,” said Provo Police Chief Rich Ferguson, “with our goal of ensuring every single one of our more than 550 Utah County police officers and 90 paramedics have a 3D mask, for their safety and the safety of those they serve.”
King says many questions are being asked about the protection and longevity of the 3D masks, but assures all that the masks are reusable, can be sanitized and do offer some level of protection against COVID-19. “They do not offer 100% protection, but it is certainly better than nothing. The filter and elastic we use for the 3D mask comes from the N95 masks. With the 3D Mask, we can cut an N95 into 5 separate filters and use one mask at 5 different locations,” said King. “Is it a perfect solution? No, but with the shortage of N95 masks that are needed for health care this gives some protection.”
“We are practicing calm preparedness in Provo,” said Provo Mayor Michelle Kaufusi. “We can’t know what the response needs for COVID-19 will be, but we can do all we can now to be as prepared as possible for any scenario and, most importantly, that our first responders are both protected themselves and are protecting those who need us.”
Mayor Kaufusi said the community donations come as no surprise. “Provo always comes together when there’s a need,” said Kaufusi. “I’ve been so touched to see the many examples of generosity, empathy, kindness and creativity as a result of our shared challenge. We started #ProvoProud to highlight those stories and the donation of 3D face masks from so many in our community is certainly one of those moments.

***UPDATE*** We are astounded with community support we have received!
We will have Provo Police Employees available Monday, March 30 between 9:00 am and 5:00 pm on the East side of our department to accept donated masks. (You do not need to supply the filter or elastic).
Calling all 3D Printer owners, we need your HELP! Provo Police Department and Provo Fire Department, like many in the nation, are unable to purchase protective masks. If you have a 3D Printer PLEASE go to our webpage at provopolice.com and download the blueprint/instruction on how to print these masks.
Dr. Dusty Richardson from Billings Montana created the 3D blue print and has so generously shared it throughout the nation at no cost.
We are partnering with Utah Valley University, Brigham Young University, Nebo School District, and Utah County Sheriff's Office.
We are only able to print one mask every two and a half hours. If you want to contribute and have a desire to donate PLEASE print these masks, bring them to the front counter at 48 S. 300 W., Provo, UT 84601, pick up the phone, dial 801-852-6210 and let dispatch know you are dropping masks off.
