On Jan. 12, The Lincoln County Ambulance District (LCAD) took a big step in keeping the community safe from nasty viruses like Ebola, Flu, MRSA and C-Diff.

LCAD recently purchased 4 EDU-435 UV-C Disinfection Lamps, one for each ambulance base.
Paramedic Mary Smith places the lamp inside one of the ambulances which will be used to disinfect ambulances from bacteria.
 These lamps will be used to help disinfect ambulances and the ambulance bases. These lamps have been shown to protect the public and the ambulance district’s personnel from exposure to contagious organisms.

These lamps, when used regularly, will provide 99.999999 percent disinfection and kills all known bacteria, virus, mold, protozoa and yeast. When the staff uses these lamps in conjunction with topical disinfection this technology will provide a safer environment for patients and staff.

In addition to killing virus and bacteria in the ambulance, the crews will be able to use these portable UV-C lamps to disinfect living spaces like bunk rooms where an individual may have become ill. This technology can stop the transmission of diseases that before may have caused an outbreak of colds and flu in areas such as an ambulance base that many people share 24 hours a day. The new UV-C Lamps will keep staff healthy, and it will keep the ambulances and bases clean for those who visit or tour the facilities.
