|Title:||Guide for the Selection of Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear Decontamination Equipment for First Responders|
|Published:||March 01, 2007|
|Abstract:||The primary purpose of the Guide for the Selection of Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear (CBRN) Decontamination Equipment for Emergency First Responders is to provide emergency first responders with information to aid them in the selection of CBRN decontamination equipment. Decontamination equipment addressed in this guide includes delivery systems, containment devices and accessories, shelters, showers, commercial decontaminants (foams, solutions, gaseous, no aqueous, etc.), and decontamination systems and trailers. The guide is intended to be more practical than technical and provides information on a variety of factors that should be considered when purchasing decontamination equipment, including functional application, capacity/throughput, and effectiveness, to name a few. This guide describes equipment suitable for decontamination of personnel, equipment, infrastructure, and facilities, and offers effectiveness in qualitative terms.|
