Decon. Overview

Decontamination Zone

Victims exposed only to chlorine gas who have no skin or eye irritation do not need decontamination. They may be transferred immediately to the Support Zone. All others require decontamination. Rescue personnel are at low risk of secondary contamination from victims who have been exposed only to chlorine gas. However, clothing or skin soaked with industrial-strength bleach or similar solutions may be corrosive to rescuers and may release harmful chlorine gas.
