With global research increasingly highlighting the airborne transmission of COVID-19, a sharp focus on air hygiene in shared indoor spaces is vital. Tipperary Fire and Rescue Service is leading the way by introducing the medical grade Novaerus air dis-infection device at its Hydra Command Development Suite on Heywood Road, Clonmel, in tandem with other essential safety measures. 

Tipperary Fire and Rescue Service are using the Novaerus devices for all command development courses run at the Hydra Suite. The Irish-made medical grade Novaerus devices use patented ‘NanoStrike’ plasma technology that has been proven to kill 99.99% of the Ms2 Corona surrogate virus as well as all airborne viruses and bacteria including mumps, measles, and flu, all year round.  It is used in 65 countries worldwide, supporting industries with additional frontline protection, to continue to operate safely.

Martin Moore, Assistant Chief Fire Officer at Tipperary Fire and Rescue said: “We’ve been working throughout the pandemic as an essential service. Training is an integral part of the Fire Service.  As such we are always looking for ways to make our environment safer and using the Novaerus technology to protect our indoor air provides everyone with a healthy place to learn and work.”  Deirdre Devitt, CEO of Novaerus at McGreals, which distributes the devices in Ireland, said: “Awareness of the importance of air hygiene is one of the permanent legacies of COVID-19.
