Requesting PPE and Critical Supplies from FEMA: How it Works. 1. Healthcare facilities share critical needs with local emergency management officials. Requests are fulfilled within the state and local government structure and purchases are reimbursable by FEMA/HHS. 2. If supplies are not available within the state, territory or tribal government, requests for resources are forwarded to FEMA. 3. FEMA/HHS work with other federal agencies to fulfill requests.
