b. Zip and fasten the overgarment jacket.
c. Secure the hood, then secure the overgarment to increase protection.

Note. After assuming MOPP4 and performing all the tasks according to the unit SOP perform the following actions:1. Use all means of CB detection to check your surrounding area for the presence of contamination.2. Contact higher headquarters (HQ) if no contamination is found or if you determine the attack was non-CB.3. Await further guidance. (Higher HQ contacts all adjacent/attached units to check the status of CB contamination in their areas. If all units report the absence of contamination, the information is reported up the chain of command.)4. Annotate the above actions on your duty log (Department of the Army [DA] Form 1594).
