The WFDA is diligently working to advocate for funeral service professionals to have access to PPE. We have been in contact with the Wisconsin Emergency Task Force and have expressed our need for PPE’s, extra labor for funeral homes, and a streamlined process for funeral directors to understand what to do when the deaths occur. This task force is meeting TODAYand it is imperative that funeral directors across the state contact their County Emergency Manager to request PPE this morning. If enough funeral service professionals reach out, we have a better chance of receiving this critical equipment. Our membership is strong and our voices will be heard if we work together.
****Please note that this is not a guarantee that you will receive your request, so keep checking with your funeral home suppliers to obtain PPE.
Please reference your County Emergency Management Office to find the contact information for your County Emergency Manager. Call them as soon as you can and request PPE for your funeral home.
We will continue to keep you up to date as more information is released.
