2006 – Emergency First Response USA was founded by Sir Samuel Marx to help train First Responders.​

2014 – A support program was created to assist Disabled Veterans and Retired First Responders with much needed products.

2020 – Emergency First Response USA changed name to Emergency First Response Centers USA and opened a new office in West Palm Beach, Florida.

​​​​At the start of 2020, Covid-19 entered our lives and we found ourselves inundated with requests for PPE, during the first three months we decided on a plan of action which was to create a supply chain for Veterans and First Responders, active and retired, who could not get the physical protection equipment (PPE) they needed. Items like masks, gloves, gowns, face shields, sanitizers, and ventilators that they need to protect themselves, their families, and the general public from getting and spreading COVID-19.

Emergency First Response Centers USA began #COVIDHELP4U as an initiative to provide needed supplies and together with our strategic partners and sponsors, we’ve been able to serve many in this fine country.

Continued financial donations will allow us to carry on purchasing additional supplies and distribute them immediately.

You may make a financial contribution through this page or sponsor the purchase of supplies via our website (all proceeds going directly to purchase supplies and support our mission):

Some of the supplies we have available include:

– N-95 masks for high-risk use

– KN95 masks

– 3-ply surgical masks

– Nitrile (latex-free) gloves

– Face shields

– Hand sanitizer

– Gowns

And more being added each day… If you have Supplies you wish to donate, please reach out to Sam at sam@efrcusa.com and let him know how you can help.

Our hope is to be able to help the following organizations and put desperately needed items in the hands of the most at risk:

– All Veterans including the Homeless​

– Emergency responders (police, medical, hospitals, etc)

– Hospitals, urgent care facilities, and doctors’ offices

– At-risk populations (elderly, senior centers, homeless shelters, sick families, etc.)

For any donation of $365 or more, Rated Trades Media Group, a global digital marketing agency, will donate 1 Full Year of Advertising in their Digital Directory, a highly ranked Google search engine tool. Businesses interested just need to provide their donation receipt and contact information via an email to get an account.

As we began our campaign, we were overwhelmed with the outpouring of compassion and concern. We want to give hope and give back to OUR COMMUNITIES.

Please consider donating to those in need and share with us anyone who may need our assistance.

Thank you from Emergency First Response Centers USA and our team.​



“Freedom and security are precious gifts that we, as Americans, should never take for granted. We must do all we can to extend our hand in times of need to those who willingly sacrifice each day to provide that freedom and security. While we can never do enough to show gratitude to our nation’s defenders, we can always do a little more.”

– Gary Sinise
