When an emergency vehicle responds to a call, they are often rushing to a potentially life-threatening situation. First responders enter unknown environments filled with hazardous substances, ranging from infectious diseases like COVID-19 to biological and chemical contaminants.
These risks can put their health and safety at risk each time an emergency call goes out. In preparation for whatever dangers they may be exposed to, first responders need to know that their vehicles are properly decontaminated afterward. At Bio-One of Pittsburgh, we specialize in emergency vehicle decontamination to protect our first responders who put their lives on the line.
What is Emergency Vehicle Decontamination, and Why is it Important?
Emergency vehicle decontamination is the process of removing all contaminants, such as blood, bodily fluids, and hazardous materials, from the interior and exterior of emergency vehicles. Emergency vehicles include all types of first responder vehicles, including police cars, ambulances, and fire trucks.

What Does the Process Entail?
Vehicle decontamination involves multiple steps and techniques, including disinfecting high-touch surfaces, wiping down the interior and exterior of the vehicle, and bio-washing to remove biological contaminants. We use hospital-grade and EPA-approved disinfectants that are proven to kill a variety of viruses and bacteria, including COVID-19. Our team also uses equipment, such as foggers, to disinfect between crevices and spaces that may not be easily accessible.
