Cummins Commercial Mobile OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) Frazer, Ltd. understands the impact that essential workers can make during a pandemic. Based in Houston, Texas – Frazer, Ltd. is the leading builder of emergency service vehicles and generator powered custom EMS vehicles for over 25 years.
For 15 years, Frazer has relied on Cummins to provide their units with the most reliable power. In a time where critical care is at its peak, the company recognizes the need to be truly prepared for any variable. Because of its true independence from the chassis, Frazer opted for the Onan QG 5500 EFI commercial mobile generator to power their emergency vehicles and specialty mobile healthcare units. Prior to the COVID-19 crisis, the mobile lung screening unit was only used to screen for the beginning stages of lung cancer. Now these specialty units have been deemed even more essential and critical during the pandemic as the virus has been known to attack the lungs and respiratory system first.
Frazer is taking every precaution when it comes to the safety of patients and medical personnel – who can take comfort in knowing that most units feature a state of the art ultra violet light decontamination system. This UV light decontamination system allows UV-C light to get into the cracks and crevices of the equipment to disinfect and decontaminate the unit. This is much more efficient than physically wiping down the unit or using aerosol systems which allow for too much downtime.
Across the country, service teams and shops who partner with Frazer are also teaming up to help fight the pandemic. Frazer representative, Scott Harrell said, “You can’t have a unit down because it needs to be out there saving people’s lives.” Frazer is also offering free service training at their Houston production facility – which includes training on the Cummins Onan generator. “Anything to help the customer take care of their unit to help it last longer,” said Harrell.
Since the start of the pandemic, Frazer has been committed to providing safe and continuous service to their customers as well as a safe working environment for their employees. To keep up with production demands during the COVID-19 crisis, the company completed an in-depth analysis of their production lines. The results indicated that moving to two shifts allowed the company to safely limit the number of employees on the production floor. All employees are expected to wear PPE and stations have been geared to keep people working at a safe distance. The company is also taking steps to possibly install UV lights on the production lines to aid in continuous decontamination. From the employees to the customers across the country, Frazer is doing their part to make sure safety is always at the top of the list.
