031-503-3008 (SL2) - Implement Mission-Oriented Protective Posture

Standards: Implemented MOPP and directed soldiers to assume the appropriate MOPP level based on MOPP guidance from the commander. Identified all deficiencies and took appropriate corrective action for soldiers sleeping in MOPP 4.

Conditions: You are in a nuclear, biological, or chemical environment or are warned of a threat of a NBC hazard. Given two or more soldiers with MOPP gear, M8 and M9 detector paper, an M291 or M295 decontaminating kit, three nerve agent antidote autoinjectors, and a requirement to assume the appropriate MOPP level and check soldiers sleeping in MOPP 4.

Standards: Implemented MOPP and directed soldiers to assume the appropriate MOPP level based on MOPP guidance from the commander. Identified all deficiencies and took appropriate corrective action for soldiers sleeping in MOPP 4.

Performance Steps

1.   Direct soldiers to put on MOPP gear and equipment for MOPP 1 through MOPP 4. (See STP 21-1-SMCT, Task 031-503-1015.)

a.  Ensure the soldiers assume MOPP 1.

b.  Ensure the soldiers assume MOPP 2.

c.  Ensure the soldiers assume MOPP 3.

d.  Ensure the soldiers assume MOPP 4.

2.   Check yourself and soldiers for proper wear of protective clothing.

a. Ensure all soldiers are wearing the appropriate clothing and equipment for the directed MOPP level.

b. Ensure protective masks are worn and sealed at MOPP 3 and MOPP 4.

c. Ensure protective clothing is worn properly.

3.   Check each sleeping soldier.

a. Observe soldier to ensure he is breathing.

(1) Try to awaken him, if he does not appear to be breathing,

(2) If the soldier cannot be awakened, perform task 081-831-1000, STP 21-1 SMCT.

b. Check soldier's mask for indicators of a broken seal.

(1)  Awaken the soldier and have him reseal his mask, if the seal appears to be broken.

(2)  Direct another soldier to observe him for nerve agent poisoning.

(3)  Perform task 081-831-1044, STP 21-1-SMCT, if symptoms are observed.

c. Check soldier's protective clothing for problems.

(1)  Fasten or adjust the protective clothing of the sleeping soldier if his skin is not exposed and no symptoms are observed.

(2)  Awaken soldier and have him decontaminate using the M291, if his skin is exposed and appears to be contaminated with liquid.  Have soldier adjust his protective clothing or conduct MOPP gear exchange, as appropriate.

(3)  Perform task 081-831-1044, STP 21-1 SMCT, if skin is exposed and nerve agent symptoms are observed. 

Evaluation Preparation:

Setup: Evaluate this task during a normal training session. Gather all necessary MOPP gear, and ensure that it is in good condition. Be prepared to direct a series of specific MOPP levels for the evaluated soldier to implement with the troops provided (such as MOPP 0 through 4 sequentially). Have the soldier explain the deficiencies he should look for and the corrective actions he should take for a soldier sleeping in MOPP 4.

Brief Soldier: Tell the soldier that the test will consist of identifying all deficiencies and taking appropriate corrective actions for a soldier sleeping in MOPP 4 and directing soldiers to assume the appropriate MOPP level based on the MOPP guidance from the commander.
