Customs and Border (Protection) called and said “lookit, can you print about two million fliers that we can distribute? And they’re 8×10 (inch) paper printed on both sides – english on one side, spanish on the other – and have them sent to the different border crossing areas.” So we procured those through our various contractors and had them sent to them.
According to GPO’s press release, Public Printer Bob Tapella says “GPO’s mission of Keeping America Informed has spanned nearly 150 years and the agency is ready to assist our federal customers, such as the CDC, in providing the public critical information during times of need.”
Garcia says the assistance means “Whatever it takes. We’ll work overtime. In this case, we didn’t have to work overtime for it, but if needed, that’s not a problem. We’re 24/7.”
If it’s an emergency for our federal customer, we are going to do the absolute best to step up to bat to help them, whether it’s working at two in the morning, which we do because we’re 24 hours, or (they) give us a call (and ask) can you have it by tomorrow in Atlanta or in San Francisco.
