(WXYZ) — Cutting edge technology is being offered for free to help first responders and health care workers avoid spreading the deadly coronavirus.
Legacy Service Solutions says the technology they have is already being put to use.

“We disinfect everything first. But, the big key to this, is the antimicrobial finish we put on. A coating that goes on every surface. Fabrics. Countertops. Keyboards. Door handles.” says CEO Jim Ales.

He describes it as a type of invisible armor that inhibits growth, repels and destroys germs from COVID-19.

After years of working in commercial floor coating, his Waterford-based company is switching gears to help those on the front lines.

“We’ve taken care of Oakland County Sheriff substations," Ales said. "Parts of the jail. Beverly Hills Police Department, Bloomfield, Waterford Township.”

He adds, “Uniforms, vehicles, even those personal cars of doctors and nurses, as well as fire stations and ambulances are all eligible for the services. They are also 100% safe, EPA and FDA approved.”

“We saw the need there. We have something that can help. Once the police officers started dying, it changed our focus from business. We are refocused. We cannot have the 1st responders go down.” Ales said.
