1 Personnel Protective Equipment Lesson topic 4.4

2 Enabling objectives zDescribe the function of personal protective equipment consisting of the ACPG, MCU-2P protective mask, boots & glove set to include: Component characteristics & functions zDescribe the operation to include donning/doffing procedures for personal protective equipment zExplain abnormal conditions associated with personal protective equipment

3 zDescribe the operation to include donning/doffing procedures for personal protective equipment to include: Theory of operation, Pre-operational procedures Enabling objectives

4 Purpose zPersonal Protective Equipment provides protection against eye, respiratory & skin hazards from chemical, biological agents & radioactive fallout particles

5 MCU-2/P Protective Mask zEye-respiratory & facial skin protection zAvailable in three sizes ySmall, medium, large zFace piece yUnimolded silicone rubber ySize determined by measuring the distance from the bridge of the nose to the bottom of the chin

6 zLens yDistortion free view yOptically clear urethane yWide field of vision zFront Voicemitter zSide Voicemitter MCU-2/P Protective Mask

7 Lens Voicemitters MCU-2/P Protective Mask

8 zHead Harness ySix metal tipped elastic straps yQuick donning tab zNose Cup ySilicone rubber yCovers nose & mouth yInlet valve disks, reduces fogging MCU-2/P Protective Mask

9 zInternal Drinking Tube zDrinking Tube yM1 Canteen Cap zOutlet Valve Cover yProtects the outlet valve yHolds external drinking tube MCU-2/P Protective Mask

10 Outlet valve cover & drinking tube

11 zOutlet Valve Assembly yOne-way valve ySilicone rubber disk ymesh screen prevents dislodging zInlet Valve Assembly yOne-way valve behind canister yCan be switched to other side MCU-2/P Protective Mask

12 zC-2 canister yCharcoal filter yNATO threads y3 per mask MCU-2/P Protective Mask

13 zExceeds 5 year shelf life z30 days in contaminated environment (One shot of blood agent) z60 days in non-contaminated environment zCharcoal is wet zCanister damaged zExcessive breathing resistance zCharcoal dust is on face after use zCO directs Canister change out requirements

14 Mask accessories zCarrier yMildew resistant nylon yWater-proof bag used to stow MCU-2/P zOutsert yOptically clear shell

15 Chemical Protective Footwear Covers zSizes are small & large zButyl Rubber, Non-slip soles zCapabilities yIndefinite shelf life when in bag y24 hours in a contaminated environment yProtects from liquid chemical agent

16 Chemical Protective Glove Set zSizes - extra small, small, medium, large & extra large zButyl Rubber zInner cotton liners adsorb body moisture PROTECTIVE GLOVES ARE NOT TO BE USED FOR ELECTRICAL WORK

17 zCapabilities yIndefinite shelf life yProvides at least 6 hrs in a contaminated environment yProtects from liquid chemical agent Chemical Protective Glove Set

18 Advanced Chemical Protective Garment (ACPG) zThe ACPG/JSLIST (Joint Service Lightweight Integration Suit Technology) provides protection from the effects of nuclear, biological and chemical (NBC) contaminants. ACPG/JSLIST is lighter and less bulky, imposes less heat stress and reduces psychological and physiological burdens compared to the current garments. The ACPG/JSLIST ensemble uses a single base-garment design, which can be configured to meet each Service's requirements. The ensemble comes in three parts: protective suit, protective boots and protective gloves.

19 ACPG Jacket zSizes - small, extra short, small short, medium regular, medium long, large long zEquipped with yHood with draw cord yVelcro fasteners - wrists and elasticized drawstring at waist yZippered front closure with velcro fastened flap

20 zPocket on left sleeve zElastic loop attached to the bottom back of the jacket to keep it from riding up & exposing the wearer's back ACPG Jacket

21 zEquipped with yHigh waist with adjustable suspenders yVelcro fasteners at the waist & ankles yCargo pockets yZippered closure zMaterial for smock & trousers yCamouflaged outer layer with activated charcoal inner layer ACPG Trousers

22 Capabilities zWashings - 6 are permitted zUncontaminated wear life is 45 days zContaminated wear life is 24 hours z120 days in a non-contaminated environment out of sealed bag

23 ACPG zChemical Protective Footwear Covers Chemical Protective Gloves AirBoss Light Weight Boot Gloves

24 CBR-D Kit Bag

25 Wet Weather Clothing zWorn over the ACPG yProvides extra protection from liquid chemical agent droplets & solid particulate & to prevent garments from getting soaked by countermeasure wash down system or sea spray

26 zParka yJacket style yHood with a draw cord, visor, and adjustable fastener straps zOveralls yBib front with elastic suspenders Wet Weather Clothing HEAT STRESS!

27 Review and Summary zMCU-2P protective mask zAdvanced Chemical Protective Overgarment – ACPG zBoots and Glove sets zWet Weather Clothing

28 We need to be PREPARED!! Training ANTHRAX SHOT SURVEYING SHOTS UPDATED MCU-2P
