Ordering PPE in Spokane County

The state backstop will be available to meet COVID-19 PPE requests through Oct. 31, 2021.

  • Who can order: State, local, and tribal agencies, partner associations, health care providers and businesses needing PPE can order from the state backstop. Department of Health (DOH) Prioritization Guidelines for Allocation of Personal Protective Equipment are available. Not all facilities or individuals that request or need access to PPE may be captured within these tiers. Local emergency management agencies need to use their best judgement around how to prioritize those facilities and individuals in order to best serve their communities.
  • How to order in Spokane County: Please fill out this PPE Order form and email it to Heather Kitchen, hkitchen@spokanecounty.org. She will forward your request up to the State level and after they fill it with available resources they will ship it directly to the address you provided on the form.

For more information about the PPE backstop you can visit the Washington DOH website.
