05/01/11 126 W, 1 I - + 1 - 6 Tour Raleigh's New Decon Trailer

Lee Wilson has posted photos showing the inside of Raleigh's new decon trailer. The Schantz & Sons trailer was outfitted by Matthews Specialty Vehicles. It's designed for decontamination of responders at hazardous materials incidents. There are two separate individual shower stalls, as well as stations for undress/dressing. Looks like the equipment includes hot water heaters and tanks to capture the contaminated water. The trailer is also carries an all-terrain vehicle. The unit replaces a box truck that carried decon equipment that requiring assembly for deployment. It's housed at Station 22 and staffed by Ladder 5. And it's pulled by a 2005 Ford F-550 Super Duty prime mover that's designed SR3. See our prior posting on the trailer as well.
