VIDEO: The New Haven Fire Department has a new weapon in the war against Covid-19. The department purchased an AeroClave device, which is a fogging system that disinfects on contact. “We are using it for firefighters or medics that go into a building of potential exposure. When they come out, we can actually decontaminate the firefighters gear and spray the firefighter right down on scene,” said Mark Vendetto, Assistant Chief Operations with the New Haven Fire Department. It takes about three minutes for the machine to disinfect an ambulance. Assistant Chief Vendetto said, “right now we are doing routine cleaning around all the fire stations around the city, including our emergency operations center, also including our 911 center.” The department bought it in response to COVID-19.
