Plymovent protects hundreds of thousands of firefighters on a daily basis.
Amidst the novel COVID-19 virus, Plymovent would like to recommend some additional safety measures to continue protecting our first responders in this uncertain time.
Because the Plymovent System is the first piece of equipment that is handled/touched when the first responders return to the fire station from an emergency call, the company recommends cleaning or wiping down the system’s exterior with a disinfectant such as Clorox wipes or similar that has been approved by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to use against COVID-19.

This should be done on a daily basis in the high touch areas of the Plymovent System such as the yellow and black flexible exhaust hose below 6 feet, the Safety Disconnect Handle, the manual rill and deflation valve and knob if it is a Pneumatic Grabber® System, the lower 2-foot yellow and black hose above the Grabber®Nozzle that connects to the vehicle’s exhaust, and the face of the Plymovent OS automatic exhaust blower control unit.
