Plymovent, the recognized world leader in Emergency Vehicle Exhaust Removal Systems, protects hundreds of thousands of Firefighters on a daily basis. Amidst the novel COVID-19 virus, Plymovent would like to recommend some additional safety measures to continue protecting our first responders in this uncertain time.

Being that the Plymovent System is the first piece of equipment that is handled/touched when the First Responders return to the Fire Station from an emergency call, we recommend cleaning or wiping down the systems exterior with a disinfectant such as Clorox wipes or similar that has been approved by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to use against COVID-19. This should be done on a daily basis in the high touch areas of the Plymovent System such as the yellow and black flexible exhaust hose below 6’ feet, the Safety Disconnect Handle, the Manual Fill and Deflation Valve and knob if it is a Pneumatic Grabber® System, the lower 2’ foot yellow and black hose above the Grabber®Nozzle that connects to the vehicles exhaust, and the face of the Plymovent OS automatic exhaust blower control unit.
