Mass Decon 5 (aka MD-5) was purchased by the State of New Jersey to assist in decontamination of people involved in large scale disasters like the terrorist attacks of 9/11/2001. It carries portable showers, a portable heater for hot water, tents, brushes and other assorted items. This trailer is towed by Engine 5 and responds statewide when called. MD-5 is one of six that were given to Bergen County. Each Mutual Aid region has one trailer and responds as a task force when called. Several times per year the six different teams gather and drill together in preparation for a day we all hope never comes.
