CDC/ATSDR has been the point civilian coordinator for some recent events.  They might be helpful for their perspective.

The military has done extensive work on this.  I would use this as the guide.  You can also contact FEMA (they may have the military references such as TG 244 The Medical CBRN Battle Book).  NIOSH also has some information and is working on a new First Responder Guide for CBRN

Our department just received a mobile mass decontamination trailer. I work at a city health department and we respond to any HAZMAT or WMD emergencies in North East Texas. Besides the users manual there really are no set guidelines for how to mass decontaminate a crowd.  Has anyone every used a mass decon trailer or been in a situation where  a mass decon has taken place? We are going to set up a scenario in a few months to test it out but until then I would appreciate any ideas or helpful information on mass decontamination.
