MONTEZUMA AREA POLICE AND COLORADO STATE PATROL OFFICERS CAN’T GET CRITICALLY NEEDED HAND SANITIZER. SO, J. FARGOS FAMILY DINING AND MICRO BREWERY IN CORTEZ GOT CREATIVE WITH A HOMEMADE “SOLUTION.” THANKS FOR WATCHING THE LOCAL NEWS NETWORK, BROUGHT TO YOU BY BIG-O TIRES IN CORTEZ. I’M WENDY GRAHAM SETTLE. J. FARGOS FAMILY DINING AND MICRO BREWERY IN CORTEZ RECEIVED A CALL THAT POLICE OFFICERS AND SHERIFF'S DEPUTIES WERE ON PATROL WITH NO WAY TO SANITIZE THEIR HANDS. WHEN SHE HEARD ABOUT THE SHORTAGE, SHE VOLUNTEERED TO STEP UP AND HELP OUT. ANTICIPATING A SHORTAGE ON SANITIZER DURING THE COVID-19 CRISIS, GHERE HAD STOCKED A FEW GALLONS OF HIGH-PROOF LIQUOR AND THE OTHER MATERIALS NEEDED TO MAKE THE DO-IT-YOURSELF SOLUTION. SHE PURCHASED SUPPLIES FROM WEST SLOPE LIQUOR AND THE STORE DONATED THREE EXTRA BOTTLES FOR THE PROJECT. GHERE SAYS THE SANITIZER IS ABOUT 85% ALCOHOL, A HIGHER CONCENTRATION THAN COMMERCIALLY MADE SANITIZER.  FOR THE FIRST BATCH, HER TEAM FILLED 20 SQUIRT BOTTLES FOR CORTEZ POLICE AND 8 BOTTLES FOR THE STATE PATROL. SHE PLANS TO KEEP THIS PROGRAM GOING AND DONATING ALL THE MATERIALS TO HELP THEM STAY SAFE ON THE JOB AS ESSENTIAL EMPLOYEES.
