Task: Conduct annual mask confidence exercise with assigned protective mask Condition: Given CBRN CS Chamber (VIC PJ 855305) standard CS Tablets, five Chemical Operations Specialists (74D), assigned M40 protective mask, and all necessary material. Standards: Ensure all Soldiers are familiar with the proper wear and PMCS of their protective masks. Successfully complete a series of exercises designed to stress the Soldier and the seal of their protective mask and ensure they are able to break and reseal their mask in a contaminated environment.
Purpose: Given a simulated CBRN combat environment, individual combat equipment, utilize the M40 Protective Mask Method: Soldiers will be supervised while conducting PMCS on their assigned Protective mask. Once complete, Soldiers will have nine seconds to don their mask. Then, a CBRN NCO will verify the seal on the mask. The CBRN NCO will monitor for one minute, for any fogging on the lens. Then the Soldiers will enter the CS Chamber and conduct various movements and exercises. They will stop breathing, break the seal, clear and seal. Then wait to be released from inside the chamber by the CBRN NCO.
Execution: Five Chemical Operations Specialists (74D) and one OIC observe, assist and regulate the PMCS, donning, and training of all personnel attending the training. Phase I: Soldiers supervisors trained Soldiers on Masking Procedures and correct PMCS. This training provides Soldiers technical knowledge to enable successful reaction in a CBRN environment. Phase II: CS Chamber Execution. CS Chamber are executed 20 and 21 OCT 08 at CS Chamber from 0900-1700hrs.
