Royal Upholstery is making masks for first responders to protect them from coronavirus

Royal Upholstery & Fabric Center is also gearing up to potentially supply masks to the Spokane Fire Department personnel. Krista Featherstone, owner of Royal Upholstery, says that they were approached by the Fire Department about making masks for them.

“We were approached by the Spokane Fire Department about our ability to make masks and were asked to come up with a prototype and we did,” Featherstone says. “They are desperately searching for a backup plan for when the real masks run out.”
