Applications - FirstResponder

Applications

The FirstResponder® Sterilizer may be used effectively for many applications including:

  • Sterilization of EMS Vehicles and Equipment (Ambulance, Police and Fire)
  • Contained Law Enforcement Rooms (Holding Cells)
  • Locker Rooms
  • Restrooms
  • Public Transportation Vehicles
  • Bunker Gear
  • EMT and Police Equipment
  • Hospital and Medical Rooms

The prevention of contaminant buildup to infectious levels is especially important when one considers hospital acquired infections, or Hospital Acquired Infections. HAI contraction is one of the biggest preventable causes of death in a health vehicle. Regular cleanings with the FirstResponder® Sterilizers can reduce EMS contribution to HAIs and potentially save lives. In addition, eliminating pathogen exposure for EMT, Police, and Fire personnel and their equipment provides a signficant reduction of the odds of sickness.

In 2014, results of a project known as the HAI Prevalence Survey were published. The Survey described the burden of HAIs in U.S. hospitals, and reported that, in 2011, there were an estimated 722,000 HAIs in U.S. acute care hospitals (see chart below). Additionally, about 75,000 patients with HAIs died during their hospitalizations. More than half of all HAIs occurred outside of the intensive care unit.

Urinary Tract Infections 93,300
Primary Bloodstream Infections 71,900
Surgical site infections from any inpatient surgery 157,500
Other types of infections 118,500
Estimated total number of infections in hospitals 721,800

OZONE

FirstResponder® Triatomic Oxygen Generator

Produces high levels of ozone gas ions that completely destroys potentially harmful pathogens for EMS/Police/Fire vehicles, contained rooms, bunker gear, and EMS/Police gear

After the ozone ion fumigation cycle finishes, the patented FirstResponder® Scrubber Technology removes all remaining ozone within minutes by converting it to oxygen, allowing fast and safer access to the sterilized vehicle/room and bunker gear/equipment.

UV-C

First Responder Ultraviolet Germicidal Light

UVGL is a disinfection method that uses short-wavelength ultraviolet (UV-C) light to kill or inactivate microorganisms by destroying nucleic acids and disrupting DNA replication

UV-C works in seconds simply by exposing the infected area to UV-C light

Disinfects surfaces in EMS vehicles, medical offices, hospital rooms, locker/restrooms etc…
