Protect the Protectors with Our Essential Guide to Gear Safety

December 5, 2022by Global Ozone

Want to keep your unit safe in more ways than one? You’ve already got the body armor and other protective gear — now let us help you safely sanitize it so you can prevent the spread of dangerous germs and extend your equipment’s life. 

You already know how uncomfortable – and smelly – protective gear can get, especially during the summer. Every time you put on your gear, you’re hit with a wave of odor from your last shift (and maybe even the one before that). But even worse than the smell? The dangerous bacteria, viruses, and mold that are likely causing it. 

Common sanitizing methods often break down the integrity of protective gear, meaning you have to take several painstaking steps to get the funk out of your gear. Instead of wasting time and possibly degrading your equipment, check out our new Essential Guide to Safely Sanitize Tactical & Protective Gear to learn about a better way to take care of your gear and your health. 

What’s Inside the Guide

Our Essential Guide provides everything you need to know to keep your equipment intact while also killing bacteria, viruses, and mold. Throughout the guide, you’ll hear from a Decon Zone user whose K9 training team was completely transformed once it adopted the system. 

We’ll let you know what’s at stake when you don’t properly care for gear — and just how costly it can be to replace damaged items. We also break down the cost to your community when first responders are out sick during an emergency. Most importantly, the guide highlights the danger of letting germs fester in your gear, equipment rooms, and other common spaces. These potentially life-threatening pathogens can and should be managed by a strict sanitizing protocol. 

The guide walks you through traditional sanitizing methods (and why they aren’t working). Whether you’re in the Air Force, a police officer, a firefighter, or another first responder, we know that the old way of washing your gear is taking up way too much of your valuable time and possibly compromising your safety. 

Don’t worry — we’ve got you covered. Our Decon Zone sanitizing system is proven to significantly reduce a number of germs, including RSV, MRSA, and staph. Decon Zone leaves behind a fresh scent that will make your unit feel more comfortable in their gear. On top of the sanitizing and odor-killing benefits, Decon Zone extends the life of your gear — making it much easier to stay within budget year-over-year. 

The guide even helps you advocate for yourself and your fellow soldiers and first responders. You’ll find key data points that explain how we protect the protectors and maintain your gear, which can help you lobby for funding to purchase a unit.
