Sanitation Safety During COVID-19

Hand washing has moved to the forefront during the COVID-19 Pandemic. The simple virus fighting technique is one of the keys of safety and protection. The CDC has issued guidance for hand wash procedures and timing. The recomendations can be found here. https://www.cdc.gov/handwashing/when-how-handwashing.html

But who cleans the sinks and hand wash stations for us? Portable sanitation technicians are on the front line of cleaning and sanitizing public facilities. With the increase in portable handwash trailers and sinks in the field, it is even more imperative to protect the technicians. One solution offered by Ameri-Can Engineering are quick wash down ports. These quick connect ports are available on all models of Ameri-Can Hand Wash Trailers, Shower Trailers, and Restroom Trailers.

The stainless steel ports allow a sanitary solution for cleaning the handwash sinks and rooms without the need for extra hoses or water. Ameri-Can has partnered with Aquor Systems for its stainless steel connectors. https://aquorwatersystems.com/project-highlight-ameri-can-restroom-shower-trailers/ Ameri-Can utilizes the connectors for Fire Service Handwash Trailers that are capable of meeting Cal-Fire and Forest Service specifications.
