  8. Pah lightweights what about a 8 hour working day excavating contaminated soil wearing the old Soviet rubber kit at 30°+ (internal temp of the suits was measured at 50°C+) the only way we could manage it was having a firehose permantly spraying the area and all working in it.

  11. Try starting a 2 hour stint in full IPE in a contaminated environment and realising you've got a fly inside your mask.
     
  12. You're just showing off. Anyone would thinkyou did this NBC thing for a living. :wink:
     
  13. i still think the defecation drill would be prety challenging....
     
  14. What do you mean, would? That's the trouble with the training today. Too much explaining of what you need to do and not enough actually doing it.
