Self-Care Decontamination Protocols, Training Materials, Videos and Exercise Green Cloud Now Available

Greetings Everyone

I am very pleased to announce that the Self-Care Decontamination Protocols, materials,videos and Exercise Green Cloud are now available! This has been an exciting and rewarding research project to be involved with. There are several different parts of this release to consider:

1. The Self-Care Protocols and accompanying materials and training videos are now available. Please check out the "Pre-Exercise Green Cloud Training Materials web site." The training video that summarizes the key learning points from our research findings is available on this web page. As well, all of the 12 videos (ranging from 1.5 minutes to 10 minutes) step viewers through each of the various protocols and training aspects (e.g., dealing with at-risk populations, technical decontamination).

2. Exercise Green Cloud has its own web site and all of the materials (e.g., the Exercise Controller Guidebook, maps, Major Schedule of Events)are available on the web site. This exercise involves an Incident Command Post, an Emergency Operations Centre and a Hospital Emergency Response Team in regards to a CBRNE event.

3. Also attached to this message is the final Hazards Workshop Report - this report summarizes the workshop presentations, the suggestions that were proposed to enhance our protocols and how these protocols have been addressed in order to incorporate this feedback.

I would like to thank all of our subject matter experts who attended the workshop, our Expert Working Group, all of the communities and volunteers who participated in our initial exercise in March of 2013, the subsequent drills and videos, and our Exercise Green Cloud pilot in October 2013. I also would like to thank the Canadian Safety and Security Program, Defence Research and Development Canada for their continued support for this project and Health Canada.

We are currently working with F.A.S.T. to revise the Self-Care Decontamination Kits and hope to pilot them soon - we'll keep you updated on our progress.

Finally, many thanks to the JIBC Research Team and staff who have supported this major research project.

We look forward to your feedback and to hear about your implementation of our protocols.
