Victim Removal

If victims can walk, lead them out of the Hot Zone to the Decontamination Zone (they should not walk long distances if at all possible as physical exertion may worsen and/or accelerate the development of non-cardiogenic pulmonary edema). Victims who are unable to walk may be removed on backboards or gurneys; if these are not available, carefully carry or drag victims to safety. Should there be a large number of casualties, and if decontamination resources permit, separate decontamination corridors should be established for ambulatory and non-ambulatory victims.

Consider appropriate management of chemically contaminated children, such as measures to reduce separation anxiety if a child is separated from a parent or other adult.
