Decon Engine Company Drill at Catasauqua High School

 

On Saturday, March 24, East Allen Township Fire Department took place in a Lehigh and Northampton County joint emergency exercise program at the Caty High School.  The drill included the evacuation of a number of victims from the school who had been 'exposed' to a white powder substance from the air handling system.  Engine 4611 set up a mass decon operation along with several other mass decon engine engine companies.  Engine 4611 is one of only 3 or 4 such companies in Northampton County.  A mass decon engine is equipped with a special Trident nozzle, a tarp with curtains, and a number of decon kits (protective clothing and replacement clothing) for those going through decontamination.  The crew has also received specialized training.
