Sterilis Solutions System for Fire Dept/First Responders
Safe Disposal Options for Fire Stations
The number of needles is increasing as the result of the heroin epidemic and the growing diabetic population. More and more fire stations, as well as other public health and safety institutions are being called on to offer safe disposal options required by specific state and federally regulated protocols.
Protect the Community Through Waste Management
Assuring the public’s health, protected by limiting the risk of disease and infection, is attainable with the Sterilis Solutions system.
The system serves as a drop-off point for needles that are sterilized and ground into a material that takes up a fraction of the space of needle or sharps containers. Simply switching to a point-of-care system automatically saves all that extra waste from going into our landfills.
When ambulances or EMTs return from calls, they can walk the sharps and other regulated medical waste directly to the Sterilis Solutions system. It never touches the ground, further eliminating risks for infection.

“Technology can help reduce the risk of infection and reduce the burden on society,” said Sandwich Fire Deputy Chief John Burke. “Having the Sterilis technology onsite makes it easy to do this affordably and safely, significantly mitigating the risks involved in storing and transporting sharps off site for regulated disposal treatment.”
