Protect yourself from NBC injury/contamination with JSLIST chemical protective ensemble by achieving mission-oriented protective posture (MOPP)4 within 8 minutes, performing all steps in sequence, and returning to MOPP0 when ordered

Conditions: You are given the JSLIST chemical protective ensemble and a protective mask.  You learn that a chemical attack is about to happen.  You must enter an area where chemical agents have been used, or you must recognize a chemical hazard, or you are attacked with chemical agents without warning.

 

Standards: Protect yourself from NBC injury/contamination with JSLIST chemical protective ensemble by achieving mission-oriented protective posture (MOPP)4 within 8 minutes, performing all steps in sequence, and returning to MOPP0 when ordered.

 

Performance Steps

   1.  Don the MOPP gear.

           a.  Don the overgarment trousers.

                 (1)  Extend your toes downward, put one leg into the trousers, and pull them up.  Repeat the procedure for the other leg.

                 (2)  Close the slide fastener, and fasten the two fly opening snaps.

                 (3)  Pull the suspenders over your shoulders, and fasten the snap couplers.  Adjust the suspenders to ensure that the trousers fit comfortably.

NOTE:  The trouser length can be adjusted by raising or lowering the suspenders.

                 (4)  Adjust the waistband hook-and-pile fastener tapes for a snug fit.

           b.  Don the overgarment coat.

                 (1)  Don the coat, and close the slide fastener up as far as your chest.

                 (2)  Secure the front closure flap hook-and-pile fastener tape up as far as your chest.

                 (3)  Pull the bottom of the coat down over the trousers.

                 (4)  Pull ends of  the waist elastic coat retention cord through the front of the coat to fit around your waist, and tie the ends into a bow.

           c.  Don the overboots.

                 (1)  Don the overboots over your combat boots.  Adjust and secure the strap-and-buckle fasteners.

                 (2)  Pull trouser legs over the multipurpose overboots (MULO).  Secure the hook-and-pile fastener tapes on each ankle to fit snugly around the boot.

:  If the MULO are not available, use black vinyl overboots (BVO) (current rain boot used also for chemical, biological [CB] protection).

           d.  Don the chemical protective mask.

                 (1)  Adjust the head harness, and check for a good seal (according to the TM).

                 (2)  Pull the hood over your head and chemical protective mask.  Close the slide fastener completely.  Secure the hook-and-pile fastener tape closure up as far as the top of the slide fastener.

                 (3)  Place the edge of your hood around the edge of your mask, and secure the hook-and-pile fastener tape.

                 (4)  Snap the barrel locks together; squeeze both ends of the barrel lock while pulling the draw cord, and simultaneously slide the barrel lock up to your chin.

                 (5)  Have a buddy check the hood seal around your mask to ensure that the hood is positioned properly and no skin is exposed (tie the excess draw cord in a bow, if necessary).

WARNING:  THE BARREL LOCK RELEASE BUTTON MUST FACE AWAY FROM THE USER TO PREVENT THE BARREL LOCK FROM UNFASTENING AND POSSIBLY EXPOSING THE USER TO CONTAMINATION.

                 (6)  Untie the bow in the coat retention cord.  Bend over,  reach between your legs, and grasp the waist elastic coat retention cord loop.  Bring the coat retention cord loop forward through your legs pulling on it so the bottom of the coat fits snugly over trousers.

                 (7)  Place the waistband coat retention cord loop over the webbing strip at the bottom of the coat, fasten the webbing strip and snap to keep the retention cord loop in place.  Some discomfort may be experienced in the crotch area due to the coat retention cord.
