031-503-1023 Protect Yourself from Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear (CBRN) Injury/Contamination when Changing Mission-Oriented Protective Posture (MOPP) Gear

Conditions

You are in MOPP4 with load-bearing equipment (LBE). Your MOPP gear is contaminated. Your buddy is in MOPP4 with LBE, and he/she is available to assist you with MOPP gear exchange. You are given FM 3-5, an uncontaminated set of chemical MOPP gear for yourself and your buddy, and an individual decontaminating kit. For chemical and biological (CB) decontamination, you have one personal decontamination kit per person; one 50-pound drum of super tropical bleach (STB) dry mix; and a piece of plastic, a poncho, or similar material. For radiological decontamination, you have 5 gallons of water (if water is not available for radiological decontamination, brush, wipe, or shake off contamination), three 3 gallon pails, one can of government issue (GI) soap or liquid detergent, two sponges, and paper towels.

Standards

Protect yourself from CBRN injury/contamination while changing MOPP gear, ensuring that you decontaminate your individual gear and equipment without spreading contamination onto your skin or undergarments. Set your uncontaminated gear aside on an uncontaminated surface; and change your overgarments, overboots, and gloves without spreading contamination to the uncontaminated set of MOPP gear. Change MOPP gear without becoming a casualty.
