Category 1 Bio Hazards
The most severe of all bio hazard situations, a category 1 is a major incident with multiple victims, who may have suffered various injuries. The event and its repercussions are in evidence over a large area and require many biohazard cleaning crews for a prolonged period of time in order to address. Significant resources will be required in order to eliminate any visual or bacterial remnants of the event.
Examples of category 1 incidents:
- Train crashes
- Plane crashes
- Bomb blasts
- Large-scale road traffic accidents
