As part of Diplomatic Security's Weapons of Mass Destruction program, embassy employees are instructed in the proper decontamination process. In the event of a biological, chemical, or radiological attack, these decontamination showers allow quick treatment for victims and emergency response personnel. The showers were designed and built by the deputy regional security officer at the embassy.
