Northampton firefighters Adam Martin (right) and Dave Murrett exit a decontamination tent during a decontamination drill at Cooley Dickinson Hospital on June 3, 2013. The drill is required by the state, and each city with a hospital has a decontamination tent. Within the tent, a patient that is unable to move will be assisted by firefighters through the tent. The patient will be showered and given new clothes to prevent contamination of the hospital’s emergency room.
