What Should You Have in Your Decon Kit?
If you are part of an emergency situation that involves a fire or are involved with extinguishing a fire the following procedure should be followed.
Your kit should have:
Small / Large Trash Bags
Here are recommended clean-up procedures:
Remove turn out coat and hood. Use Enspire ® Decontamination Wipes and/or Towels to remove as much soot as possible from head, hands, arms, neck, jaw, throat and face.
- Use extra safety glasses during decon to protect soot from getting into your eyes.
- Attach the hose to the truck and rinse your gear. The scrub brush will help to remove stuck on debris. Once finished, use a large garbage bag to store your gear. Remember to perform a thorough cleaning of gear once back at the station.
- Use the small trash bags to dispose of all wipes that have been used. DO NOT use the trash bags for biohazardous materials.
- Following these steps will help to reduce your risk of cancer.
