“Taking you one stage further in your survival training”.. as my old Territorial Army seargent used to say, We are going to look at how to put on a Gas mask or respirator.
Giving the current global climate, the new cold war we have looming on us, what is happening in Syria as well as the apocalypse, having a Gas mask and knowing how to put one in is going to be a required skill.
Not only will will this knowledge protect you from nuclear and biological/chemical warfare but it will also come in handy for those times when foofoo the dog drops one of his noxious farts on an unsuspecting room.
With this in mind, I will be showing you how to put on your gas mask, Let’s move on.
In the event of any of the above scenarios taking place, take a deep breath and hold it.
Take hold of the gas mask by the straps with the face of the gas mask facing down and pull the mask over your face and head.
Check to make sure that the straps are not twisted and the mask is secure around your face.
(Note: That manly beard you have been growing could create gaps between the mask and your face, giving Foofoo’s fart or any other toxin access to your face and lungs).
Once the gas mask is secure around your face, breath out fast, shouting “GAS, GAS, GAS” this will clear any toxins or dog fart out of your mask and will also serve to warn others in your area of the threat. If, however there is a possibility of Zombies, Aliens or gun toting apes hearing you, a sharp exhale will do the same job.
As with all survival techniques and training, practice makes perfect. The faster you can correctly put your gas mask on, the safer you will be in the event of a chemical attack or nasty pooch pump.
Let me know how you get on
