Kyle Zahn, registered nurse, Emergency Department, TAMC, on the proper technique to successfully decontaminate his hands using an M291, an activated charcoal skin decontamination kit. Knowing how to decontaminate the hands and face is one of required tasks that must be completed in the Expert Field Medical Badge course, scheduled to begin Oct. 29 at Schofield Barracks. More than 20 Soldiers interested in earning the right to wear the EFMB joined Tullia and other volunteer instructors and EFMB holders throughout August, September and October to train for the upcoming course.
