Decontamination detection

Threat Assessment


Decontamination detection

Tactical Decisions


Expectations of the first responders

Expectations of the First Responders

  • Event Takes Place: 9-1-1 is called

  • 3-5 minutes First Responders are on the Scene

  • The Roll of the First Responder:

    • Stop The Panic

    • Attend to Victims

    • Make the problem go away


Where do you fit in

Where Do You Fit In

  • Looking for the Silver Bullet.

  • Advanced Detection

  • Remote Monitoring

  • Continual on going Training

Detection and decontamination subgroup responsibilities

Detection and Decontamination SubGroup Responsibilities

  • Define user requirements for CBRNE Detection and Decontamination equipment

  • Identify and evaluate existing Detection and Decontamination standards

  • Prioritize Detection and Decontamination standards’ needs


Detection priorities

Detection Priorities

  • Radiological (Equipment is readily available and departments are buying without any standards)

  • Chemical (Equipment is readily available and departments are buying without any standards)

  • Biological

  • Explosives


Radiological detection standards

Radiological Detection Standards

  • DHS and ANSI developed 4 radiological detector standards in early 2003.

    • Hand-held radioactivity instrumentation

    • Pagers

    • Electronic personnel dosimeters

    • Portal detectors

  • D&D Subgroup participated in the process


Chemical detection standards partners

Chemical Detection Standards Partners

  • National Institute of Justice

  • National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST)

  • Edgewood Chemical and Biological Center (ECBC)

  • National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH)

  • US Army Center for Health Promotion and Preventive Medicine (USACHPPM)

  • InterAgency Board (IAB)

  • Emergency Responder Community

  • Industry

  • Department of Homeland Security


Chemical standards strategic process

Chemical Standards Strategic Process

  • Define characteristics of realistic hazards.

    • Hazard Analysis

    • Development models specifically for indoor releases

  • Defined health hazard levels

    • Respiratory Exposure

    • Percutaneous Exposure

  • Define performance levels which enable the user to make tactical decisions

  • Define design, quality, and reliability standards.

  • Determine testing procedures to evaluate consistency with standards.

  • Certify third party testing laboratories

  • Provide test data to user to allow educated procurement decisions


Status of chemical vapor detector

Status of Chemical Vapor Detector

  • Hazard Analysis and modeling complete (Basis for NIOSH CBRN standards and will be used in protective ensemble standards )

  • Defined health hazard levels

    • Respiratory Exposure complete (Requirements in NIOSH CBRN standards)

    • Percutaneous Exposure (In review, will be used to define ensemble requirements)

  • Define performance levels which enable the user to make tactical decisions (see above)

  • Define design, quality, and reliability standards. (In process)

  • Determine testing procedures to evaluate consistency with standards. (In process)

  • First Draft complete


Activities to be completed

Activities to be Completed

  • Obtain Public Comment on Proposed Standard

  • Validate Test Procedures

  • Certify third party testing laboratories

  • Provide test data to user to allow educated procurement decisions


Decontamination priorities

Decontamination Priorities

  • Personnel

  • Buildings

  • Materials/Equipment


Decontamination standards status

Decontamination Standards Status

  • Multiple agencies have begun to collaborate in their efforts in this area

    • Department of Homeland Security

    • Environmental Protection Agency

    • National Institute of Standards and Technology

    • Edgewood Chemical and Biological Center
