The Disaster Management Systems – All Risk
Triage Tag is designed to prompt first responders to consider scene safety
and contamination hazards.For this
reason, the Tag has been designed with a “CONTAMINATED” strip affixed to
the side of the Tag.
The CONTAMINATED strip has 3 main functions…
First, it is designed to prompt the first
responder to consider the possibility of hazardous contaminants.If none, simply remove the tab.
Second, it is designed to identify contaminated
victims prior to decontamination.The tab is removed from the victim when the clothing is removed and
the tab is placed with the clothing in a clear plastic bag.
Third, the tab is designed to identify possible
contaminated evidence for law enforcement personnel.
