Kent RFA Fire Garage designed and retro-fitted a quick connect fitting on the pump panel to give a constant flow of 94 to 104 degree water for gross decontamination at the fire scene.
This was accomplished by teeing off of the pump intercooler line that runs behind the pump panel. Utilizing tank water, crews can quickly rinse off soot, and debris. A quick-connect coupling add to a washer hose allows users to control the spray.
Proper Gross Decontamination has been recognized as a significant opportunity to address dermal absorption of known carcinogens and toxins exposed to on the fire ground.
