Federal Signal’s Sanitization Response to COVID-19

Federal Signal Corporation is Dedicated to Environmental Cleanup Efforts in Response to The Coronavirus Outbreak

Federal Signal wants to remind new and existing customers, dealers and end users that the installed base of products manufactured by our Company’s Environmental Solutions Group, including sewer cleaners, safe-digging trucks, street sweepers and waterblasting equipment, can be used in efforts to clean and sanitize outdoor public areas, such as recreational spaces, parks, museums, sidewalks, streets, bridges and other common public areas where germs can spread. In addition, these products can be used to sanitize other vehicles, like buses, railcars, subways or trains as well as the stations they park in.

Existing Federal Signal equipment and our rental fleet can quickly be mobilized and/or modified, if needed per CDC guidance. As a strong partner with governments and municipalities, Federal Signal is uniquely positioned to rapidly support.
