First Responder Vehicle Sanitation Program
Thank you First Responders for your service to our communities!
Over 1.1 million Firefighters, over 800,000 Law Enforcement Officers, & over 800,000 Emergency Medical Service are serving communities in the United States
Thank you to all who serve our communities!
Everyday millions of First Responders are giving of themselves to serve our communities. No matter the weather, the dangers, the exposures, we can always rely on our First Responders to be there to help.
Now that we are all affected by the COVID-19 Crisis, First Responders are burdened with an even heavier workload.
Take for example the first responders tested in NYC. 15% of their police workforce were out sick at the beginning of April, which accounts for 5600 officers, 1200 of which have tested positive for COVID-19, 5 have died. One of the greatest fears mentioned was bringing the virus home to family members.
We at Premiere Restoration would like to do one small thing to help. We would like to provide a FREE deep clean of your First Responder Vehicle so that we can help you have peace of mind, knowing that you are in a clean, safe environment. If you believe you have an exposure to the virus after this, simply call us and we will repeat the process of deep cleaning your vehicle to help make it a safe place to be again. We are offering this service for FREE to all First Responders as a token of our appreciation for all you do.
What is this service?
First Responders are always giving of themselves to their communities. We at Premiere Restoration are attempting to give back in a small way by providing a deep clean or “sanitization*” of the vehicles our first responders use. Our goal is to help protect those who are serving on the front lines.
What is the Process?
Using an environmentally friendly hospital grade disinfectant (non-toxic, non-corrosive, approved by the EPA for use against Covid-19), we begin by wiping down sensitive electronics and covering them. The inside of the vehicle is then fogged with the same disinfectant and closed for around 4 minutes (the time the EPA lists for killing the virus on non-porous surfaces). While the disinfectant is working inside, we apply it on the outside touchpoints of the vehicle as well. After this the dash and windows are wiped down as necessary, the vehicle is aired out, and the vehicle is ready to go.
How long does it take?
Approximate time ranges from 20-30 minutes, although multiple vehicles can be done at the same time.
- Initial wipe down and covering of electronics: 5-10 minutes
- Interior treatment: 5-10 minutes
- Wiping off glass and hard surfaces as necessary: 5-15 minutes
When and where is this service available?
Monday-Friday 8am to 4pm. After-hour availability for emergency service if needed. Service is provided in the parking lot of Premiere Restoration (Please see the map).
How do we schedule service?
After you register your department and receive a confirmation from us, we are requesting a “day before” estimate of vehicles and estimated time windows emailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org or a phone call to (612) 306-3644
(i.e. 5 police cruisers on Thursday 4/30 between 1 and 4pm).
