DeconPro Services

DeconPro Services are designed for the hazardous-material, first responder and others to attain the highest-possible level of proficiency in personal decontamination and PPE doffing. This is accomplished through interactive practice under controlled conditions and technical analysis of the results. All DeconPro services make use of the technology, tools and techniques, and Contaminated Doffing Principles exclusive to HSA.

The services are conducted in the HSA Decon Research Facility, which includes a hepa-filtered decon chamber, multiple fluorescent simulants, proven material-movement tracking techniques, and a staff with many years of hazmat response and training experience.   Services can be customized to meet your requirements.
