Emergency Technical Decon (ETD) revolutionizes turnout gear cleaning.


Using water to clean waterproof garments has understandably been problematic. Our patented cleaning process utilizes liquid CO2 to clean turnout gear more deeply and increase the life of PPE, all while using less water and energy. Our process can eliminate 99% of harmful toxins from any PPE used by safety and healthcare workers, creating safer working conditions.

Our liquid CO2 process is not a washing machine


ETD provides first responders with safer working conditions. Period. Our patented process uses the low surface tension and viscosity of liquid CO2 to penetrate even the most waterproof layers of PPE. Our multi-rinse process disposes of dangerous contaminants while recycling the CO2 used in cleaning. Multiple CO2 machines allow the rapid return of PPE to first responders.
