The police and fire departments have gone full Star Wars on battling the coronavirus.
Cops and firefighters are using electrostatic guns to disinfect cruisers, cells, fire apparatus and equipment.
“It looks like something out of Star Wars,” Police Chief Brian Clark said Tuesday, adding that the gun quickly and evenly coats a surface with a chlorine solution.
The applicator gives a negative charge to the disinfecting solution as it exits the nozzle. It allows the sanitizer to wrap around and evenly coat all types of surfaces for a better cleaning job, Clark said.
In addition, the surfaces that are already covered repel the spray, making the method extremely efficient.
“It cleans more. It’s more efficient and you don’t have to touch the surface,” Clark said.
