North Vancouver’s Cam Clark Ford is sending over its hottest new models to help out local police officers, but there’s no high-powered sedan or SUV in sight.
The Ford dealership recently sent 300 face shields to the North Vancouver RCMP detachment to help keep officers safe in the COVID-19 era.
The PPE was made in Canada, at Ford’s Windsor Site, as the automaker has repurposed the facility to produce face shields for Canadian medical personnel and first responders. Ford is working with governments across the country to distribute the face shields to those who need them.
“Ford of Canada has a long history of supporting Canada and its communities in times of need,” stated Ford of Canada president and CEO Dean Stoneley in a release. “By repurposing our production facilities in Windsor to meet the urgent demand for face shields, we can help protect the lives of our heroic healthcare professionals and first responders as they continue to treat the most vulnerable among us.”
