UV-C Light Technology Helps Keep Ambulances Clean

The Lincoln County Ambulance District is keeping our 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.  These lamps will be used to help disinfect ambulances and the ambulance bases.  These lamps have been shown to protect the public and our personnel from exposure to contagious organisms.

These lamps, when used regularly, will provide 99.999999% disinfection and kills all known bacteria, virus, mold, protozoa and yeast.  When our staff uses these lamps in conjunction with topical disinfection this technology will provide a safer environment for our 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 where many people share close quarters 24 hours a day.  The new UV-C Lamps will keep our staff healthy and it will keep our ambulances and bases clean for those who visit or tour our facilities.
