Decontamination Facilities

Decontamination One of the key aspects to emergency preparedness is the ability to provide patient decontamination in response to a Chemical, Biological, Radiological or Nuclear (CBRN) incident. By combining resources, the Partnership has established a robust program consisting of both Fixed and Portable Patient Decontamination Capabilities, to include an 80-person patient decontamination team. Team members serve as "first receivers" outfitted in Level "C" Personal Protective Equipment and participate in monthly training to maximize readiness.

In addition, tools are available to aid in the triage and decontamination of victims of hazardous materials incidents or radiological exposure.
