Decontamination showers to be deployed as part of drill tomorrow

The Vanderbilt University Medical Center Department of Emergency Preparedness will be conducting a Decontamination Training Exercise on Wednesday, June 18, from 5:30-8:30 p.m. which will require deployment of the decontamination showers in the circle drive of The Vanderbilt Clinic.

The purpose of the exercise is to provide decontamination sub-plan training to all departments who support this component of the VUMC Emergency Operations Plan so the Medical Center can be prepared to respond to an emergency incident which requires decontamination of patients.
