Incidents with release of chemicals are insidious. The HazMat team has not only to overcome the immediate consequences of a spill but also the decontamination of casualties, fire service personnel and equipment. By following the zone concept and correct procedures, emergency services personnel can minimise the risk of contamination. Training of proper decontamination principles is a demanding task. Proven decontamination procedures are described in detail and some case studies are presented.
