Aseptic Health’s Hospital-Grade Disinfectant Now Used to Disinfect Emergency Vehicles Against Coronavirus Ocean County, NJ, New Decontamination Sites Keep First Responders Safe
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (April 5, 2020) – Aseptic Health’s hospital-grade disinfectant, Aseptic Plus+, has long provided a fast and effective, low-toxicity solution to sanitize commercial and residential facilities. Now, Aseptic Plus+ is also used to disinfect emergency vehicles of first responders against the novel coronavirus, announced Autumn Ryan, founder and CEO of Aseptic Health.
The Ocean County, New Jersey, Sheriff’s Office, in partnership with Ocean County Police Chiefs’ Association, has established a decontamination site in Berkeley Township to sanitize emergency response vehicles.
Vehicles are sprayed using ULV foggers with Aseptic Plus+, an EPA-registered, hospital-grade disinfectant that is non-caustic, non-corrosive and fragrance-free.
In its first week of operation, the decontamination site serviced over 200 emergency response vehicles, according to Ocean County Sheriff Michael G. Mastronardy, who serves as Ocean County Coordinator for the Office of Emergency Management. “The site is set up for any police, fire or first aid vehicle in the county, especially those that have transported someone suspected of having the coronavirus,” said Sheriff Mastronardy.
“It’s important we keep our emergency responders – all of our police, first aid and fire personnel – safe during the coronavirus outbreak,” added Sheriff Mastronardy. “Along with all of our health care professionals, emergency responders are heavily relied upon by our residents. We need to do all we can to keep them safe.”
Sheriff Mastronardy said additional vehicle decontamination satellite sites are expected to be established under the Brick Township Office of Emergency Management and Jackson Township Police Department.
“I appreciate the efforts of all of our police chiefs and all of our emergency responders,” said Sheriff Mastronardy. “These partnerships go a long way in making certain we have what we need to keep our responders safe and to assist our residents.”
Ryan praised the work of Sheriff Mastronardy and the police chiefs for leading this effort to protect their first responders as well as Aseptic Health’s Certified SanitizeIT® Operator in New Jersey for working closely with these officials to quickly launch the decontamination sites.
“In the five years since I founded Aseptic Health, we’ve achieved exceptional, Clinically Clean® results disinfecting facilities in a broad range of industries,” said Ryan. “But the speed and decisiveness of Sheriff Mastronardy and the township Police Chiefs as well as our SanitizeIT team were remarkable in creating an immediate and effective solution to safeguard first responders and the citizens they serve and protect.”

And, now, vehicle decontamination sites.
 Currently, there is no EPA-registered disinfectant with the SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) efficacy claim listed on its container label. However, EPA List N: Disinfectants for Use Against SARS-CoV-2 includes products that meet EPA’s criteria for use against the novel coronavirus that causes the disease COVID-19.
