1 National Urban Search & Rescue Response System National Urban Search & Rescue Response System Weapons of Mass Destruction Module 4: Standardized Decontamination Procedures Version 3 Mod 4-1 Enhanced Operations

2 Version 3 National Urban Search & Rescue Response System Weapons of Mass Destruction Mod 4-2 Overview Time consuming Personnel and equipment intensive For US&R personnel and rescued victims or as directed Least amount of evidence destroyed Decon equipment provided to TFs is based on mission requirement

3 Version 3 National Urban Search & Rescue Response System Weapons of Mass Destruction Mod 4-3 Objective Students will setup and operate a decontamination corridor

4 Version 3 National Urban Search & Rescue Response System Weapons of Mass Destruction Mod 4-4 Decontamination Haz Mat Specialist will normally have oversight of decon operations Get clean patients to the hospital Verify with instrumentation Protect the integrity of the hospital Protect TF members

5 Version 3 National Urban Search & Rescue Response System Weapons of Mass Destruction Mod 4-5 Decontamination Prompt, safe, and effective decontamination protects against and reduces effects of exposure. Believe it or not, you have a role in this.

6 Version 3 National Urban Search & Rescue Response System Weapons of Mass Destruction Mod 4-6 Working definition of Decontamination A chemical and/or physical process to remove and prevent the spread of a contaminant from an emergency scene because of the contaminants ability to cause harm to living beings and/or the environment

7 Version 3 National Urban Search & Rescue Response System Weapons of Mass Destruction Mod 4-7 Types of Decontamination Emergency Gross Technical
