Lessons Learned Information Sharing (LLIS); United States. Federal Emergency Management Agency
"If an incident scene is deemed unsafe for a decontamination area to be established prior to responders' entry into the hot zone, hazardous materials (HazMat) personnel should communicate an alternate plan to response personnel operating in the hot zone as soon as possible. This plan should outline the alternate decontamination location and procedures for moving to that safe location."

Citing HSDL Resources

Documents from the HSDL collection cannot automatically be added to citation managers (e.g. Refworks, Endnotes, etc). This HSDL abstract page contains some of the pieces you may need when citing a resource, such as the author, publisher and date information. We highly recommend you always refer to the resource itself as the most accurate source of information when citing. Here are some sources that can help with formatting citations (particularly for government documents).
