PPE request process

There is a lot of questions and concerns around PPE requests and where to find the resources.  We all know that the State, and the Nation are facing limited supplies at the moment. 


The first step in requesting PPE from the State is for agencies to pursue requests through their local EOCs first. 


If you are unsure what  your Local Emergency Planning District is here is a map of the Local Emergency Planning Districts (LEPD)



Once you determine which district your location falls within, contact your Local Emergency Planning Committees.  Here is a link to the contact list.



Step 1: Please fill out our attached 213 RR to request resources through the State EOC (Emergency Operations Center).


Step 2: Please fill out the NEW COVID-19 PPE Survey https://form.jotform.com/alaskasharp/ppe-survey  in order for us to gauge your current supply, resupply, and usage rates.


Step 3: Please fill out the attached IMATS form. This will allow ease of shipping when a shipment is sent.


Step 4: To support your case for request of PPE, we would like a copy of your normal logistical supply chain order (which will show us you are working to utilize your normal methods of securing supplies) and anticipated arrival dates.


Step 5: Submit all these forms to your local LEPC and make sure to put SEOC ATTN LOGS 213RR in the subject line. Please be sure to follow these instruction implicitly in order to ensure your logistical requests are received and staffed at the proper location.


This request will then be prioritized based on several considerations (e.g. communities/facilities with active cases, burn rates of PPE, logistical chain resupply rates for remote locations, etc.).


If the Local Emergency Planning Committee is unable to fulfill your request, they will forward it to the State EOC.
