Abstract:

The goal of this chapter is to ensure that all members of the incident command structure understand the elements that enable sampling teams to accomplish their mission. This chapter, however, is oriented toward teams with at least two members to accomplish the task. It explores certain accepted principles that can act as a guide for the sampling teams. The chapter outlines procedures and recommendations for assembling a knowledgeable and well-trained sampling team. The sampling teams employ preentry briefings and health and safety plans (HASPs) to cover the details and circumstances of the events to which they are responding. Team members are responsible for proper planning, survey and reconnaissance, communications between team members within the hot zone and with support staff outside the zone, clean-person/contaminated-person sampling functions, sample collection, thorough record keeping and documentation procedures, sample chain of custody, and personal and equipment decontamination. It is imperative that the sampling teams understand the intended use of the sample in order to utilize the appropriate standard operating procedures. Application of the principles addressed in the chapter should aid those looking to assemble a sampling capability that covers the depth and breadth of sampling issues and serve as a refresher to those who already have that capability.
