    To re-mediate a contaminated facility (Post Office, office building)?

    Vaporized hydrogen peroxide. This is beyond the scope of FD ops and would be accomplished by EPA and sub-contractors specializing in site remediation

    To clean off contaminated persons or responders?

    Water or mild soap and water or dilute bleach and water

    Bleach water solution, for gear and PPE, just plain old soap and water wash for direct skin contact. Not really much different then if you got blood on yourself, wash it off.
