Gross Carcinogen Decontamination
Following exit from the immediately dangerous to life or health (IDLH) incident you should begin immediate gross decon of PPE (washing gear, boots, helmets, etc.) on the fireground. PPE should then be placed into a sealed plastic bag, keeping the off-gassing PPE away from passengers and self. DQE’s full selection of decontamination showers are also available here. The exposed areas of the body (neck, face, arms and hands) should be wiped off immediately following the removal of PPE.
