Air Science UV-Box Battles COVID-19 Contamination for UK Air Ambulance Service

Air Science Logo

In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, first responding agencies are continually concerned with the health and safety of their personnel as it pertains to equipment and PPE contamination. Cornwall Air Ambulance, based in Cornwall, UK is combatting this issue through the use of the Air Science UV-Box.

Cornwall Air Ambulance is one of several organizations to benefit from a grant from Lions Club International Foundation to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. The service recently received two Air Science UV-Boxes to decontaminate flight helmets, clothing and medical equipment. These high-efficiency chambers are designed to create light emission conditions known to safely decontaminate contents through the use of high-intensity ultraviolet lamps, positioned within the cabinet to destroy surface DNA, bacteria and other contaminants. These two UV-Boxes allow the Cornwall Air Ambulance crew to disinfect multiple items simultaneously, enabling the aircraft and crew to be operational and ready for the next mission as soon as possible.
