Decon: Designing Hot Zone Transitions
Date & Time
Wednesday, August 25, 2021, 2:15 PM - 3:00 PM
Katie Atwater Christopher Kehde

Building on the principles of Hot Zone Design, this presentation focuses on the design of transitional “warm zones” and decontamination spaces within a fire station. The design of these spaces is a critical part of controlling and containing contaminant exposure, and there is not a one size fits all solution. Decontamination design must be customized based on each department’s health-safety goals, operational procedures, staffing demands, and budget. This presentation will present a series of decon design solutions and will help you determine what solution it right for you.
