ST. LOUIS - The Florissant Valley Fire Protection District recently became one of the few fire districts in the St. Louis area to utilize UV-C disinfection as an additional layer of disinfection.
The fire district purchased three EDU-435 UV-C Disinfection Lamps, one for each firehouse. These lamps will be used to help disinfect vehicles and spaces around the firehouse, protecting both personnel and the public from exposure to contagious organisms.
Advanced UV-C disinfection provides 99.999% to 99.999999% disinfection and kills virtually all known bacteria, virus, mold, protozoa and yeast. Used in conjunction with topical disinfection, this technology will drastically reduce the risk of disease to those patients transported in the ambulance, as well as those who visit the firehouses for business and tours.
