I have been working with Porchjam Distillation on behalf of the Crescent City Lodge of the Fraternal Order of Police. Porchjam was very excited about helping NOPD officers on the front line during the COVID-19 pandemic. I really appreciate their help.
On Monday, April 6, I will he distributing 20 1-gallon bottles of hand sanitizer to each of the 8 District stations, SOD, and Headquarters.
Officers are welcome to use these 1-gallon bottles to refill the bottles they are currently using. If you do not have a bottle, I would recommend looking around for a spray bottle you can repurpose for hand sanitizer. The hand sanitizer is watery and more suitable for a spray bottle than a squeeze bottle.
The hand sanitizer is 80% alcohol and will do the job of sanitizing well. Hand hygiene is one of the most important aspects of staying well.
So, again, the FOP will be delivering 20 1-gallon bottles of hand sanitizer to each of the 8 District stations, SOD, and HQ on Monday, April 6. We will deliver more 1-gallon bottles later in the week.
Thanks, again, to Porchjam Distillation and Gordon Stewart, the founder of Porchjam Distillation.
Note: In case you did not see it, I was advised at the end of last week that the hand sanitizer in the floor of the Smoothie King Center was NOT available for individual officers use.
Update 4-6-2020: Jim Gallagher, Walter Powers, and I made deliveries of hand sanitizer today. Once we are able to get a feel for how we can best serve our members, and we will be in a better position to evaluate what we can do moving forward. Once again, thanks to Porchjam Distillation for their help with the hand sanitizer.
