Mass casualty decontamination

Free research, tactics, techniques and procedures on mass casualty decontamination for first responders

The U.S. Army Edgewood Chemical Biological Center offers free resources for first responders in its Updated Guidelines for Mass Casualty Decontamination During a HAZMAT/Weapon of Mass Destruction Incident. The updated guidelines include concise descriptions of procedures and checklists to set up and execute mass casualty decontamination (Volume I) as well as in-depth discussions of HAZMAT/WMD mass casualty decontamination (Volume II). Both volumes include high-resolution graphics developed for emergency reference and training materials for use in multi-lingual communities. The guidelines were updated with input from community responders, Army responders, and Department of Defense medical and chemical-biological technical expertise.
