Self-defense, North Carolina – FOX 8 reports that Self-defense Fire Department captain CJ Woody received the city’s Innovator of the Year award for designing and manufacturing a decontamination shower head for fire trucks.

“I wanted to find a way that a firefighter could go up and deconstruct himself without that outside person coming in,” Captain Woody told FOX 8.

The department’s 26 fire engines are all equipped with a shower head. The device attaches to a discharge on the back of the fire truck to create the shower.
