EMS & Firefighters

Firefighters and EMS personnel are exposed to dangerous viruses, bacteria and mold on a daily basis as first responders. They are at a heightened risk of infection due to constant unknown exposure when responding on the front lines. Deadly viruses and bacteria like VRE, CRE, MRSA, Klebsiella and now SARS-CoV-2 are just a few invisible enemies that first responders need to be prepared to fight. Furthermore, the constant wearing of personal protective equipment day in and day out increases the risk of catching one of these nasty germs depending on proper equipment and garment care.

According to the 2018 National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Injury Report, there were over 6,000 exposures to infectious diseases such as Hepatitis, meningitis and HIV that year. The NFPA recommends “firefighter health and safety programs need to focus on reducing exposure to contaminants or pathogens that might lead to illness or disease, whether through inhalation, ingestion, or absorption through the skin.”

Aseptic Health can help limit exposure to first responders with SoRite® by providing higher kill-logs at faster kill times. For example, SoRite All-In-One has been proven to kill human coronavirus in 15 seconds at a 99.999% (5-log) kill rate. The closest competitor provides a kill rate of the human coronavirus at 60 seconds and only 99.9% (3-log) kill rate. Besides killing 4X faster than the next best competition, SoRite is 1000X stronger and actually is more efficacious as can be seen in the kill logs. The number of 9’s matter!

Not only is SoRite effective at protecting First Responders on the job, the product has been categorized as a Category 4 on the EPA’s Toxicity Scale, the same as water. No gloves, masks or coveralls are required when using this product.

Additionally, SoRite is a powerful odor eliminator, allergen eliminator, degreaser and carpet/upholstery cleaner and soft surface sanitizer. So whether you’re dealing with smoke odor or degreasing your PPE after a big fire, SoRite can be your one-stop shop product.
