All decon activities occur in what zone?
CRZ/Warm. Yellow barrier tape.
Contamination control line is boundary between the CRZ & __ zone?
Support zone. Yellow tape.
Emergency decon may or may not require formal establishment of decon system?
Gross decon can be ?
Emergency or non-emergency. Remove large amt of contaminants in short period of time.
Two types of gross decon?
Wet or dry.

Victims should always be decon prior to medical treatment & transport?
F. Whenever possible
Civilians & emergency personnel can be decon together?
F. Separate - members may be operating on limited supply of air.
Structural FF gear protects FF from?
Heat & flame
-little to no thermal protection
-no one suit offers protection from all hazardous materials
Highest skin & respiratory protection. SCBA in vapor tight chemical clothing
Highest respiratory; lower skin than A. SCBA w/ splash protection
Minimal protection; nuisance contamination only
Structural FF gear CPC?
Filter cartridge is correct
Air monitoring on going(not complete)
Primary objective of CPC ladder co?
To perform rescue operations of non-ambulatory victims in contaminated area or exclusion zone
When can CPC companies operate in exclusion zone?
Tech companies are monitoring the enviroment
Can be controlled by on scene units requires no add'tl resources. HMC1 & HM Batt can be contacted via disp, 800mhz, cell for technical info. HM batt & HMC1 may be requested to respond in.
-material & it hazards id
-special equipment & special training are not needed
***No contamination of civ/responders. Addtl resources needed***
Evacuation: best considered?
-immediate danger of fire or explosion
-potential for discharge is great, it has not taken place & time to relocate people
-discharge has taken place but people are sufficiently protected to permit time for evacuation
-people not yet in the path of release will be threatened by changing conditions
Sheltering in place is preferred alternative when:
-low to moderate toxicity
-totally released & dissipating
-small qty solid or liquid leak
-migrating vapor of low toxicity & qty & people are safer indoors
-release can be rapidly controlled at source
SRA located ?
Warm zone before decon
Initial rescue activities should concentrate on?
HM: 1st ladder?

Team 2: info resources/back-up team 1
HM 2nd ladder?
Site access control.
L2 team 1: info resources
L2 team 2: initial exclusion zone
HM: 1st engine?
