Springfield Armory was named a “Public Health Hero” by the Henry & Stark County Health Department for assisting in the fight to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
The Geneseo based company, recognizing the need for Personal Protection Equipment, repurposed some of their facility’s machinery to produce face shields which were then donated to the Henry County Office of Emergency Management.
“We would like to thank the staff and executive leadership at Springfield Armory of Geneseo, Ill.,” said Mat Scnepple, Director of the Henry County Office of Emergency Management. “We ask local residents to join with us in thanking Springfield Armory for going above and beyond in keeping our First Responders safe during this unprecedented time.”
The face shields will be distributed to first responders in Henry and Stark County.
