031-503-3010 (SL2) - Supervise the Employment of Nuclear, Biological, and Chemical Markers

Standards: Supervised the employment of NBC markers. Ensured that the appropriate marker was selected, the required information was recorded on the marker, and the marker was properly emplaced. There is no change in standards if this task is performed in MOPP 4.

Conditions:
You are in a tactical environment where NBC
weapons have been used. The contamination
has been located and identified in an area.
You and your unit are at the appropriate
mission-oriented protective posture (MOPP)
level. You have NBC markers and a grease
pencil or an NBC contamination marking set.

Standards:
Supervised the employment of NBC markers.
Ensured that the appropriate marker was
selected, the required information was
recorded on the marker, and the marker was
properly emplaced. There is no change in
standards if this task is performed in MOPP
4.

Performance
Steps

1.   Supervise the employment of NBC markers for nuclear
contamination.

a.
Ensure that markers are
placed at the location where a dose
rate of one centigray per hour (cGy/hr)
or more was measured.

b.
Ensure that all
information is printed on the front
side of the marker so the word
"ATOM" is facing toward
you in an upright position.
Information should include-

(1) 
The dose rate in cGy/hr.

(2) 
The date and time
(local or Zulu, state which) of
the detonation. (If the date and
time are not known, print
"UNKNOWN.")

(3) 
The date and time
(local or Zulu, state which) of
the reading.

c.
Ensure that markers are
positioned so they can be easily
seen and the recorded information
faces away from the area of
contamination.

(1) 
Ensure that markers are
attached to objects, such as trees
or poles, so they will be easily
visible from all probable routes
through the contaminated area.

(2) 
Ensure that each marker
is placed so the next one can be
seen from the one previously
emplaced.

2.   Supervise the employment of NBC markers for
biological contamination.

a.
Ensure that all
information is printed on the front
side of the marker so the word
"BIO" is facing toward you
in an upright position. Information
should include-

(1) 
The type of agent
detected. If unknown, print the
word "UNKNOWN."

(2) 
The date and time
(local or Zulu, state which) of
detonation (place beneath the date
of detection).

b.
Ensure that markers are
positioned so they can be easily
seen and the recorded information
faces away from the area of
contamination.

(1) 
Ensure that markers are
attached to objects (such as trees
or poles) so they will be easily
visible from all probable routes
through the contaminated area.

(2) 
Ensure that each marker
is placed so the next one can be
seen from the one previously
emplaced.

3.   Supervise the employment of NBC markers for
chemical contamination.

a.
Ensure that all
information is printed on the front
side of the marker so the word
"GAS" is facing toward you
in an upright position. Information
should include-

(1) 
The type of agent
detected. If unknown, print the
word "UNKNOWN."

(2) 
The date and time
(local or Zulu, state which) of
detonation (place beneath the type
of agent detected).

b.
Ensure that markers are
positioned so they can be easily
seen and the recorded information
faces away from the area of
contamination.

(1) 
Ensure that markers are
attached to objects, such as trees
or poles, so they will be easily
visible from all probable routes
through the contaminated area.

(2) 
Ensure that each marker
is placed so the next one can be
seen from the one previously
emplaced.

Evaluation
Preparation:

Setup:
Use simulated agents to produce a
contaminated environment for chemical and
biological (CB) agents. When requiring a
marker for nuclear contamination, tell the
soldier the amount of radiation present.

Brief
Soldier:
Tell the soldier that the test
will consist of ensuring that NBC markers
are properly emplaced and all information is
printed on the markers.

Performance
Measures

GO

NO
GO

1.   Supervised the employment of NBC markers for
nuclear contamination.





2.   Supervised the employment of NBC markers for
biological contamination.





3.   Supervised the employment of NBC markers for
chemical contamination.





Evaluation
Guidance:
Score the soldier GO if all
performance measures are passed. Score the
soldier NO GO if any performance measure is
failed. If the soldier fails, show him how
to do it correctly.
