If a life-threatening injury precludes decontamination of a contaminated
individual, the fire department will be contacted immediately by telephone.
First aid will be performed if it does not endanger the safety of the
individual administering first aid.
The field team will have a list of emergency numbers (telephone numbers
and radio call numbers, as appropriate). The numbers will be kept in
an easily accessible place in the Support Zone that is known to all team
members (e.g., in the first-aid kit), and will be posted in each vehicle.
All team members will be instructed on how to obtain assistance. A map
showing the location of the closest medical facility will be available.
Based on the emergency and hazard potential, it is not necessary to require
special medical personnel or facilities to be located at these areas
as part of special medical procedures. A Field Team Personal
Emergency Contact Information list will be generated at the beginning
of the deployment and will be updated by the Incident Safety Officer
