Dear One805 Members & Supporters,
Thank you for your continued support during this COVID-19 emergency. As a non-profit serving multiple first responder agencies and community emergency programs, One805 is pleased to update you on our response that was made possible by your support. You are having a direct positive impact in our community!
One805 was the first organization to create a local Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) drive in coordination with the County Office of Emergency Services and County Health. Our office remains open with a monitored, secure drop box as One805 continues to collect this life saving equipment for Santa Barbara County’s doctors, nurses, hospital staff, and other first responders. We are also sponsoring appreciation
One805 has committed to the purchase of 45 electric foggers to disperse sanitizing solution to sterilize vehicles and rooms for all law enforcement agencies and fire agencies within the County of Santa Barbara. This will protect our community and the first responders who cannot work from home.
Again with your help, a few weeks prior to this COVID emergency, One805 launched our Emergency Twitter Program as a public service emergency preparedness and response communication tool. We could not have expected it would be put to use so quickly. One805sb on Twitter consolidates relevant information from the Police, Fire, Sheriff and County into one feed, specific to Santa Barbara County. Sign up at One805 Twitter Page.
The One805 Advisory Council (comprised of the Police and Fire Chief or Sheriff of each department in the County) submitted an emergency request for One805 to procure and fund mobile sleeping quarters with showers for officers and firefighters. We successfully fundraised and fulfilled the need.
As an emergency preparedness and response public charity, One805 will continue to “take care of those who take care of us.” Please visit the www.one805.org website for details on our COVID response and to financially donate towards our efforts. We appreciate your support, the 805 is stronger as ONE.
