Bruce Power donates hundreds of thousands of PPE

Bruce Power announced it's donating 600,000 pieces of personal protective equipment, or PPE, to front line workers.

In an announcement Wednesday morning, President and CEO Mike Rencheck says the donation includes masks, gloves, and gowns.

“I thank Premier Ford and our local MPPs, Bill Walker and Lisa Thompson, for their leadership. I also want to thank our public health and front-line care workers and all the people who keep Ontario moving,” said Rencheck. “We look forward to using our logistics and supply chain to get this equipment to the front lines as soon as possible through local and provincial organizations, our counties in southwestern Ontario, and the Ministry of Health."

He says Bruce Power continues to do its part by generating some of the lowest cost power in province and maintaining global isotope production for the sterilization of medical equipment.

“You can count on the team at Bruce Power to do its part by keeping the lights on, generating some of the lowest cost power in the province, and maintain global isotope production for medical equipment sterilization during this time,” added Rencheck.

In a news conference Wednesday afternoon, Premier of Ontario Doug Ford acknowledged the donation.

"Be it medical gowns, face masks, gloves, hand sanitizer, that's probably one of the largest donations we've had from Bruce Power. We thank-you," said Ford.
