Fire Rescue Department Adds Mass Decontamination Unit | Print |

Fulton County's Fire Rescue Department announces the acquisition of a mass decontamination unit.

The unit can be used to decontaminate large numbers of people in the event of an industrial, accidental or intentional contamination by toxic, infectious, caustic, polluted or otherwise harmful substances.

The Unit was awarded to Fulton County by the Atlanta Urban Area Security Initiative (UASI) through funds from the Department of Homeland Security. The unit is one of six in the Metro Atlanta area. 

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), through its Homeland Security Grant Program (HSGP), distributes funds to UASI. UASI program funds address the unique planning, organization, equipment, training, and exercise needs of high-threat, high-density urban areas, and assists them in building an enhanced and sustainable capacity to prevent, protect against, respond to, and recover from acts of terrorism.
