Staff Sgt. Denise Brown (from left), Senior Airman Jennifer Miranda and Senior Airman Kari England, members of the 325th Medical Group here, wash down a manikin to demonstrate the new in-place patient decontamination capability. The system is designed to rapidly decontaminate victims in the aftermath of an attack by a weapon of mass destruction or an accident involving toxic industrial materials. In assembly-line fashion, medics wearing specialized protective suits use the system's warm water rinse to ensure patients are free of contaminants before entering a medical facility for treatment.
