1 After cleaning is complete, utilize the department’s cleaning program for the rags and mops. Wash hands, face and neck or shower. PERSONAL VEHICLE Special care should be taken to ensure that contaminated turnouts are not transported in a personally owned vehicle in a fashion that would expose people or pets in the passenger compartment to harmful contaminants. Some guidelines are: 1 If the personally owned vehicle is a pick-up truck with an open bed then transporting the contaminated turnouts in the bed of a pick-up without any riders would be an option. 1 If the passenger vehicle has no trunk, like station wagons, passenger vans or SUV's, then the contaminated turnouts should be sealed into a container that prevents harmful contaminants from entering the passenger compartment. 1 If the personally owned vehicle has a separate trunk, then the turnouts should be sealed in a bag or container and transported in the trunk. IN ALL CASES, the transport of contaminated turnouts in a personally owned vehicle should only be done after a gross decontamination has been performed in the field. The contaminated turnouts should be cleaned in accordance with approved fire department policy as soon as practical. Clean turnout gear may be transported in a personal vehicle in an enclosed container or encapsulated in a designated bag to avoid cross-contamination to personal belongings. 2 7 1 || Wear appropriate PPE, EMS nitrile or latex gloves for dermal protection. 2 || Fill a decon sink with approximately two inches of warm water and detergent of choice. 3 || Grab gloves by gauntlet, pinching off end or wear one glove at a time. 4 || Using a medium bristled brush, submerge the glove and scrub the exterior of the glove; working from gauntlet toward tip.
