The FirstResponder® Sterilizer produces high levels of Ozone Gas/Silver Ions that can reach every cubic inch within a police vehicle, ambulance, fire and rescue vehicles. After the Ozone/Silver Ion fumigation cycle finishes, the patented FirstResponder® Scrubber Technology removes all Ozone Gas/Silver Ions safely within minutes allowing faster access to the sterilized vehicle.

The Ozone-Oxygen-Ozone Cycle Explained


Oxygen molecule (O2)


The applied energy splits the oxygen molecule (O2) into atomic oxygen (O1)


The single atomic oxygen (O1) connects to an oxygen molecule (O2) and ozone (O3) is formed


The single atomic oxygen (O1) disconnects from the ozone molecule (O3) and performs oxidation


The ozone molecule (O3) has turned into an oxygen molecule (O2). The cycle is completed

Why Ozone

The Oxygen atoms from Ozone readily bonds and oxidizes to infectious microbes such as viruses, bacteria, fungus, prions, etc. This bond causes the organism's cell walls and viral coats to rupture, leading to rapid destruction of the microbes.

Highly efficient…most powerful known natural oxidant
Capable of destroying a wide range of pathogens, without the need for handling hazardous chemicals.
High reactivity of ozone means it can be quickly converted back to oxygen through a simple catalytic reaction.

Sample Protocol

Step 1

Swab surface

Step 2

Read swab using Luminometer

Step 3

Perform 1 hour ozone sterilization cycle with FirstResponder® Sterilizer

Step 4

Swab same but adjacent area and read again using Luminometer


Test #1

In-house testing using the Bio Reveal system SURE II™ ATP bioluminescence luminometer and Hygiena Ultrasnap™ swabs. As shown in Table 1 below, the highest Luminometer reading was 4,705 RLUs prior to FirstResponder® Sterilizer treatment, yet a reading over 30 is considered “surface contaminated” according to manufacturer.

Post-treatment Luminometer readings were taken after FirstResponder® Sterilizer one hour treatment and readings show a dramatic reduction or elimination of surface contaminant as in Table 1 below (all readings were done in triplicate to insure accuracy):

TABLE 1: Surface contaminant pre and post treatment with FirstResponder® Sterilizer.

Location Pre-treatment * Post-treatment *
Door Handle 14 0
Biohazard Container Top 4,705 18
Gurney Handle 272 0
Ceiling Handrail 17 0
Floor (rear, right entry) 247 0
Bench Seat 109 0
Blood Pressure Cuff 216 5
Driver Steering Wheel 24 0
* Numbers represent relative light units (RLUs) read by luminometer and are directly correlated to the presence of biological materials,

Test #2

Via a certified environmental consulting expert and a third party independent testing laboratory (Aerobiology Laboratory Associates, Inc., Golden, Colorado).

Graph and table 2 below show the elimination or dramatic reduction in species-specific bacterial contaminants. Samples were taken from 12 discreet locations inside an ambulance and immediately sent on ice to testing laboratory.
