(Festus, Crystal City, Herculaneum, Pevely) All first responders have been on the front lines of the Covid-19 pandemic. EMT’s have certainly had to take lots of precautions when it comes to their calls for service. Joachim Plattin Ambulance Director Curt Stueve says all of his staff use the available Personal Protective Equipment on all calls.
When asked if his staff has responded to calls for service with those that are positive with Covid-19, Stueve says….yes they have.
JPAD was called for services with the Covid-19 outbreak at Festus Manor Nursing Center. Stueve says they do have some very helpful equipment that can sanitize their masks and other items….it’s Ultra Violet light.
Stueve says they have also been using these lights to disinfect the PPE equipment for first responders with other agencies.
