De-Wipe has donated over 43,000 of their Alcohol Free Sanitiser Wipes to Bullard Europe, their official distribution partners in Germany, to support the hygiene and wellbeing of firefighters, flood rescue personnel and emergency rescue technicians in the severely flood-hit Ahrweiler region of western Germany.

It is extremely important that these Sanitiser Wipes are distributed into this region hardest hit by the recent floods as soon as possible. This is because the rescue operation in Ahrweiler is currently moving onto arguably its most hazardous stage by concentrating its efforts on debris and waste removal. The risks posed by waterborne pathogens within floodwaters and toxic mud and waste left behind by the floodwater represents the biggest risk to the hygiene and wellbeing of those dealing with the flood’s aftermath.

Floodwaters are contaminated with sewage and other pollutants within oil and silt, so it is vital rescue workers in the region are kept as clean as possible. Using De-Wipe’s Alcohol Free Sanitiser Wipes to clean skin and equipment after exposure to toxic floodwater waste will limit the spread of infectious waterborne diseases, thus reducing the risk of an epidemic breaking out in the area.
