Procedure Kit/Trays, Decontamination, Personal Gear
Definition : Prepackaged collections of the necessary devices and supplies (either custom or standard) designed to decontaminate personal gear (e.g., garments, personal protection devices) either by physical removal or reduction, chemical decontamination, or a combination of both. Items in these kits typically include a ready-to-use and properly sealed decontamination agent and a set of applicators (e.g., pads, mitts) that permit quick and easy preliminary decontamination. The kits may be supplied in supporting trays (i.e., procedure trays) consisting of a flat-bottomed receptacle with a border around the periphery supporting all the instruments and supplies needed for the procedure; the trays are usually covered or wrapped. Personal gear decontamination kits and trays are mainly used by civil rescuers, firefighters, and military personnel; they are intended for decontamination from chemical (either warfare or toxic industrial) agents and radiation contaminated materials, and less frequently from biological agents.
