Richard Congdon is a Herkimer County Sheriff’s Deputy and a volunteer firefighter for the Salisbury Fire Department. He came up with the idea to re-purpose self-contained breathing apparatuses, or SCBAs, to make masks that can protect against the coronavirus.
Congdon says firefighters change their SCBAs every year, so he thought it was a good idea to re-use them to help front line workers.
