Apparatus can be designed with careful thought given to biological and chemical contamination and the potential for cross-contamination enough to be cleaned weekly with disinfecting agents soap and water. Do not use cloth for the apparatus seat materials. 11 Contaminated equipment SCBAs fire hose TICs etc. should not allowed in the cab of the apparatus until the equipment has been properly decontaminated. This may involve arranging transportation for the contaminated equipment from the incident to the fire station for proper for decontamination. 11 As a best practice groceries should not be routinely transported in fire department apparatus due to potential cross- contamination. Because this is a common practice while working 24-hour shifts a designated cooler or insulated zippered container can be used to minimize cross-contamination. APPARATUS TURNOUT STORAGE 11 All apparatus should have a designated turnout compartment that is separate from the cab. ABOVE SCBAs and turnouts should have their own compartment away from the cab. 11 Turnouts should not be routinely allowed in the cab of the apparatus with the exception of responding to emergencies or participating in trainings. 11 No contaminated turnouts should be allowed in any apparatus cab. 11 After an incident or training that involves contaminants all turnouts should be grossly decontaminated on scene encapsulated in a designated disposable bag and be transported to a fire station for proper cleaning. 1 1
