Federal Signal Corporation Launches Website Demonstrating How Equipment Operators Can Use Their Federal Signal Products in COVID-19 Cleaning and Sanitizing EffortsFederal Signal Corporation announced the launch of a website – www.fedsigresponse.com – dedicated to cleaning and sanitizing efforts in response to the coronavirus ("COVID-19") outbreak. New content and information, including sanitizing tips, protocol recommendations, additional equipment demonstrations, and relevant industry news, will be added to the website on an ongoing basis. Visitors are strongly encouraged to check the site frequently for important updates or click on "Contact Us" to submit specific questions or feedback.
In launching the website, the Company is reminding new and existing customers, dealers and end users that the installed base of products manufactured by the Company's Environmental Solutions Group can be used in efforts to clean and sanitize outdoor public areas, such as recreational spaces, parks and museums. In addition, these products can be used to sanitize other vehicles, like buses or railcars, as well as cleaning bridges, train stations and any other outdoor areas. These products include:
Elgin Sweeper truck-mounted street sweepers with liquid storage and liquid pumping capability. These sweepers feature flow capability to provide low pressure liquid flows to multiple nozzles and can do so while the machine is moving at any speed. Many Elgin Sweeper models also incorporate vacuum systems to collect materials. In addition, the on-board hydraulic systems can be used to power other tools.
Vactor truck-mounted sewer cleaners that combine a vacuum system with large liquid storage and liquid pumping capability. Vactor machines feature an exclusive multi-flow capability that can safely provide pressurized liquid flows to single or multiple hand-held devices or fixed nozzles at pressures from 0 to 2500 pounds per square inch (psi) and flows from 0 to 100 gallons per minute (gpm). These sewer cleaners store up to 1000 feet of large diameter hose allowing them to conduct liquids to remote or hard-to-reach areas like subway or elevated platforms or behind large structures. In addition, the on-board hydraulic systems can be used to power other tools.
TRUVAC truck-mounted vacuum excavators that combine a vacuum system with large liquid storage and liquid pumping capability. TRUVAC machines feature variable liquid flow capability that can safely provide pressurized liquid flows to single or multiple hand-held devices or fixed nozzles at pressures from 0 up to 3000 psi and flows up to 25 gpm. These vacuum excavators normally incorporate the ability to heat the liquid to temperatures nearing 200¡F. In addition, the on-board hydraulic systems can be used to power other tools.
Jetstream trailer-mounted, self-powered liquid pumps that incorporate liquid storage. Jetstream pumps feature variable liquid flow capability that can safely provide pressurized liquid flows to single or multiple hand-held devices or fixed nozzles at flows up to 50 gpm or more. Being self-powered, they can be towed while pumping on or off the road.

Sherman, President and Chief Executive Officer. "In these uncertain times, protecting the safety and wellbeing of the public is more important than ever.
