    You have lots of ways to decon and lots of equipment/resources out there for decon.
    The first thing I would look at is what type of decon do you want to accomplish. Is it gross or a technical decon. Is it a decon for your team or are we looking at a large group of people.
    More important what exposure are you deconing your personnel from. Meaning what were they exposed to. I would look at what you are most likely to encounter then start building from there.
    All of our Engine Companies are trained to assist us in decon and particualry mass decon of the public. We have two TVI tents, and various other types of decon equipment. Remember that what ever you decon your personnel with you must take with you. Meaning you must contain your material, and handle the disposal of it. We also carry small pumps that will pump water from our containment area into drums.
    If you have other questions. I can send you pictures and other info from our S.O.Ps to decon check sheets.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated, we have the capacity for gross decon right now, but I believe its only a matter of time before the more technical elements are going to be in place, thanks again for the help.
