Aftermath Services Announces PPE Sweepstakes Winners

Personal Protective Equipment

AURORA, Ill. (April 15, 2015) – Being a first responder is dangerous enough without having to worry about the risks of bloodborne pathogens. As experts in biohazard and crime scene cleanup, Aftermath Services LLC understands your concern. To show support for your service and to illustrate the value our own teams place on PPE and PPE training, Aftermath awarded 100 PPE kits this April to members of law enforcement across the US.

OSHA and CDC statistics show that over 1.1 million people in the United States carry the HIV virus, and more than 2.7 million people are infected with Hepatitis C. Employees with occupational exposure to blood and other potentially infectious materials (OPIM) are at greater risk of becoming infected with bloodborne pathogens (BBP). When you’re on the job, just a small wound or scratch can put you in contact with blood or body fluids contaminated with these and other dangerous bloodborne pathogens.

One of the most widely known and effective means to control the spread of disease is the proper use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). As the nationwide leader in the biohazard remediation and crime scene cleanup industry, Aftermath understands your concerns with the safety and wellbeing of your department. To show support for your service and to illustrate the value our own teams place on PPE and PPE training, Aftermath awarded 100 PPE kits to members of law enforcement across the US.

The PPE Sweepstakes, which ran from January until the end of March, received hundreds of entries, from which 100 winners were chosen at random. The following is a comprehensive list of winners, including five Grand Prize winners, who each received a 5.11 tactical bag, in addition to PPE kits. Some lucky departments had multiple winners!

Aftermath Services operates around three core beliefs: Aftermath cares about education, safety, and community. Throughout the year, Aftermath is proud to support those beliefs through contests and opportunities like the PPE Sweepstakes, which emphasizes proper safety procedures and gear, and our Collegiate Scholarship, which encourages continuing education around biohazard awareness. Stay tuned this summer as we announce the details of our $2,500 Charity and Community Giveaway. This contest allows the winner to donate the prize to a charity or community organization of their choosing. For more information and announcements, visit aftermath.com.
