I know of 2 others: Decon 283, which is a second piece (also a Ferrara) to E283 in Brooklyn, and the SOC Decon unit which is stored on either Roosevelt Island or at The Rock.

After looking at the picture and reading the specs for the new decon shower trucks I think they sure look like a lot of truck for what they're capable of.  They only carry 200 gallons of water which really doesn't sound like a lot unless its recycling and that doesn't sound likely since you really don't know what contaminates would have to be filtered out.  They also only have 2 showers?  That doesn't sound like much when you look at the size of the truck.  Sure seems like these trucks have very limited capability when you think about how much decontamination could be required at a large incident.

The design on the new trucks is you walk in one side and out the other,  Two rows at a time.  When you look at the back you will see two doors and then one on each side.
