Decontamination centres would have been used in the event of an enemy attack using chemical weapons.
On arrival, they would have been doused with water to remove the bulk of any contamination and their clothing would have been removed for disposal by incineration. They would then have been showered and treated to to neutralise any surface contamination. They would have been provided with replacement clothing, which would have been provided by organisations such as the Red Cross.
Although fear of such an attack persisted for the entire period of the war, the threat never materialised.
