Vehicle Fleet Disinfection

The COVID-19 crisis has put first responders and EMS workers at greater risk of infection than many have ever experienced before.

When ambulances transport patients with the new Coronavirus, they risk spreading the virus to their next patient – or contracting the virus themselves. If you want to contain the spread of COVID-19 within your EMS team, routine cleaning and disinfecting (of both the patient compartment and the front cabin) after every call is the best way to prevent COVID-19 from spreading to both patients and EMS providers.

 

Create and Implement a Cleaning/ Disinfecting Routine for Your Vehicle, Equipment, and Station

An EMS provider needs to be ready to jump into action at a moment’s notice. Vehicle cleaning/disinfecting must be done quickly and thoroughly between every call. This is especially important during the pandemic, as an unclean or improperly disinfected vehicle could contribute to the spread of COVID-19. It’s essential to use effective disinfectants and reach 100% of all areas within the vehicle, exposed surfaces and beyond need to be hospital-grade free of harmful pathogens.

Clean and Disinfect Vehicle HVAC System

Protect your crew and patients by by thoroughly sanitizing the vehicle’s HVAC system. This may well be the most overlooked, yet important safety measure in cleaning emergency vehicles. There is a wealth of evidence to suggest that COVID-19 can spread through the air and poorly ventilated closed spaces can exacerbate the spread. This includes office buildings, stores, restaurants, and even vehicles.

When you clean and disinfect your ambulance, it is crucial to open the vehicle doors and allow for airflow exchange. It’s also critical to disinfect your HVAC system with a solution that will eliminate viral contaminants and is EPA registered for use in HVAC systems. This will prevent COVID-19 from hiding in your HVAC system, only to infect patients and first responders when the ambulance, military transport or emergency assistance vehicles start running again.

Health experts believe that COVID-19 will be with us for quite some time. Businesses and individuals will need to be vigilant to protect themselves and others – and individuals working in healthcare and the first response will need to be even more so. Therefore, disinfecting protocols and portable surface sanitation systems are essential to providing emergency medical services safely and effectively.
