It seems like an unlikely partnership, but nothing is business as normal during the COVID-19 pandemic. People and organizations that in typical times would never have gotten together are knocking down barriers to find ways to help produce personal protective equipment (PPE) for healthcare workers and first responders.
Under normal circumstances, the team at Pulsar Security are known for community volunteerism and patriotism as a number of Pulsar’s staff have served in the Military. But, as the concern for adequate PPE supplies for our local medical personnel increased, Pulsar knew our technology expertise would allow us to do more.
In concert with Lowell Makes, (non-profit, shared community workshop and laboratory in Lowell, Massachusetts, that collaborates on community projects to promote science, technology and art) we were able to tap into the specs for producing 3D printed PPE masks. With the technical specifications outlined, and Pulsar’s commitment to fully fund materials for several 3D printers, production of the masks was underway.
Couple that with a young girl wanting to help Pulsar produce masks. This young girl is a motivated 8th grader at NH’s Academy for Science and Design Charter School (who just happens to be Pulsar Security’s CTO, Duane Laflotte’s daughter) currently under the State’s mandated remote learning initiative, AND who is also a Cadette Scout of the Girl Scouts of the Green & White Mountains working towards the prestigious Silver Award.

The result – masks that will be delivered early this week to our local
community hospitals in a grassroots effort to keep our local healthcare
workers safe.
Do you want to help? Stay tuned for a post where we outline our process of printing the masks and share how you can do the same. Let's all do our part to combat COVID-19.
