Ford Introduces a New Heat-Based Strategy to Help Police Interceptor Vehicles Neutralize Coronavirus

Using extreme heat, Ford is teaming up with police forces to take on a new strategy towards fighting coronavirus. The strategy involves using extreme heat on the interior of police vehicles for a short period, helping to eliminate viruses inside the vehicles and neutralize the coronavirus' footprint. Using advanced heating software, police across the country can work towards fighting the virus during this uncertain time through Ford's latest innovation. At Tri-Star Ford Blairsville, we are excited to provide updates as often as we can, and we encourage our customers from Latrobe to Homer City to contact us at any time for more information!

Ford Teams with Ohio State University for Trials

Ford and Ohio State University worked together to determine the specified range of temperatures needed to neutralize the COVID-19 virus effectively. Following this collaboration, Ford has moved forward towards conducting trials with New York City Police Department vehicles, as well as Los Angeles Police Department vehicles. The hope is that officers and police forces will be able to fight the virus through this new software operational system effectively across the country.
