Our firefighters already risk their lives every day in order to save others and protect their communities, and with the current health crisis, it is even more important that we all come together to help protect those who protect us.
OCEAN SPRINGS, Miss. (PRWEB) August 14, 2020
Gulf Coast Pharmaceuticals Plus (GCPP), a leading specialty pharmaceutical distributor based in Ocean Springs, Mississippi, recently donated hundreds of N95 respirator masks to fire departments across the United States.
