While I am prepared for a pandemic with N99 masks, I have no NBC capability. How many of you have NBC gas masks and what kind?
Wow. What a discount. What a time to be brokeGet a box of maintenance tyvek suits sold at Amazon.
We use these a lot water, chemical proof and just throw them away.
They are only about $7 a peace.
They are good to have for any job that is so dirty or contaminated that you don't want to get stuff on your clothes or skin.
I just ordered 5 myself. Noticed the high rating it seem all the people that gave it a 4 instead of 5 was because they ordered the wrong size.
Good question. The last time I used the masks was escaping the Cedar fire in San Diego that burnt 200,000 acres and killed many people. My daughter who was two at the time still ended up in the hospital for smoke inhalation. I remember being more scared in my life looking at my daughter, driving illegally down a closed HWY 8 with nothing but destruction on both sides of the HWY. I look at masks for more than just chemical attacks but anything that could arise.More than 800,000,000 people have died in the last ten years. I wonder how many of them died in gas attacks?
I believe that if available that it is a viable option because so many people live by highways and railroad tracks and many dangerous chemicals are transported by truck and rail.Seems to me that if you are sheltering in place, you don't have to worry about decontamination and body suits but DO need to worry about toxic gases/vapors that you cannot totally seal out so an NBC mask itself would be all you need. But if traveling or trying to bug out to your hidey-hole, THEN the cheap TYVEK suits that are out there seem like a reasonable option. Thoughts?
