Decontamination Dressdown at a Transportation Accident Involving Radioactive Material

The purpose of this User’s Guide is to provide instructors with an overview of the key points covered in the video. The Student Handout portion of this Guide is designed to assist the instructor in reviewing those points with students. The Student Handout should be distributed to students after the video is shown and the instructor should use the Guide to facilitate a discussion on how the decontamination dressdown process is implemented.  During this discussion, the instructor can present various scenarios, each of which would discuss decontamination at the accident scene. The purpose of this discussion would be to cover how responders would determine the proper decontamination method, set up the decontamination corridor and conduct the decontamination of the entry team responders.
