Please provide your name, business name, phone number and the number of masks you would like to receive. Masks are being distributed on a first come, first served basis.

State Resource

The Emergency Vendor List includes vendors used by the Virginia Department of Emergency Management (VDEM) and Virginia Department of General Services – Division of Purchases & Supply (DPS) during a "state of public emergency". The list may be utilized to quickly obtain supplies and services to provide assistance to those in need.

DPS does not endorse nor suggest any vendor appearing on the emergency vendor lists.  Businesses should conduct their own due diligence prior to procuring from any vendor listed.
