Mass Decontamination Disrobe (MDD) and Rerobe (MDR) Modules

Mass decontamination disrobe and rerobe modules are provided to allow the provision of disrobe and rerobe packs at any incident where the decontamination of large numbers of casualties is required.

These packs are in addition to those provided on front line appliances and the Incident Response Units and are intended to ensure that the numbers required by current planning assumptions can be met.

36 MDD modules and 14 MDR modules are strategically positioned throughout the United Kingdom to provide effective coverage to all areas of 300,000 plus population and identified potential risks.

Disrobe and rerobe each carry approximately 1200 packs stowed in the modules within wheeled cages. The modules also carry a complete Firefighter Decontamination Unit, which is stowed, within similar cages.

The modules are transported on standard New Dimension prime movers. The MDD is stationed at the Civil Contingency Station at Exeter in Devon and the MDR is stationed at Taunton's Resilience Station in Somerset.
