Wearing a bulky HazMat suit during responder decontamination makes it difficult to maneuver, leading to slips and falls. After watching emergency responders resort to using walkers, traffic cones and other objects not designed for their specific needs during decontamination, DQE has developed the Decon Stability Cane. The producet allows responders to move with ease by grasping the security of the Decon Stability Cane. The Decon Stability Cane is an exclusive DQE product made of sturdy, high-density, industrial-grade PVC, to withstand years of use in the field. The T-shaped handle is the ideal size for a responder’s gloved hand and the handle’s bright orange colour increases visibility among other decon apparatus. The four legs have skid resistant rubber feet that resist slipping in wet environments, such as a decontamination grid. The cane is especially helpful to lean on when washing lower extremities and the soles of boots. Having a Decon Stability Cane for support will assist responders with completing the decon process more quickly and thoroughly, the company said.
