The Austin Fire Department, in collaboration with the Emergency Operation Center, is still in need of cloth face coverings.

The AFD held a facemask donation drive several weeks ago. Those masks were distributed to nursing homes, long-term care facilities and residents in need.

The AFD has a collection container outside the fire station front door next to the dog statue.
