Wel-Fab, Inc has developed a new Lightweight Inflatable Decontamination System (LIDS) Emergency Management (EM) for use as a field deployable Contamination Control Area (CCA) supporting EM personnel performing decontamination processing procedures.
LIDS EM was specifically designed and engineered for today’s quick response Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD), Emergency Management (EM) Teams. This system provides complete Contamination Control Area (CCA) decontamination capability for Ambulatory and Non-Ambulatory EM personnel while wearing the Level A, B, and C Hazmat Suits.
The LIDS EM package provides a Tactical Decon System, which meets all of the stand-alone requirements for worldwide deployment. LIDS EM provides a complete stand-alone decontamination capability, which can be rapidly and easily re-supplied by WFI when needed. LIDS EM can be expediently and effortlessly setup on all improved and unapproved surfaces, using minimal EM manpower.
LIDS EM provides a quantum leap forward in decontamination system capability for use during the EM CCA Process. Building on the unmatched quality, modularity, and flexibility of our company’s products, we worked closely with numerous EM and CST units to develop this most advanced and easy to use personnel decontamination system available today.
The benefits of owning this ultimate decontamination system translates into unparalleled logistic improvements, reduced unit footprint, shorten technician-training time, reduced setup/breakdown times, and the fastest relocation times during extremely austere and diverse emergency response conditions within all types of EM field operations.
LIDS was independently tested and validated by the USAF Air Warfare Center and approved for use by the Department of Defense, Joint Program Executive Office (JPEO) for CBRNE use. The lightweight and ergonomic design of LIDS was proven during testing to significantly reduce technician thermal burden that is usually associated with the setup and operation of a decontamination systems.
