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.

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).

RELEASE BUTTON MUST FACE AWAY FROM THE USER TO PREVENT THE BARREL LOCK FROM

retention cord.  Bend over,  reach between your legs, and grasp the waist
