Before police officers can protect the public from a terrorist attack or deployment of weapons of mass destruction, they must first protect themselves and one another by selecting and using the appropriate type of personal protective equipment (PPE) for the crisis at hand. This Video On Demand explains what PPE is appropriate for liquid splashes, vapors, chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN) threats. Different types of respiratory protection are explained, along with the limitations of those systems. Law enforcement personnel learn how the use of PPE can impair their senses and potentially adversely affect their ability to sight weapons, gather evidence, restrain suspects or run. Trip and fall hazards associated with some types of respirators are discussed, as is the possibility of exhausting air supply or the time allotment for chemical filters on masks.

Police work can be physically exhausting, and so can wearing PPE. When high-stress situations require physical exertion and the use of barrier-protective clothing, police officers can be at high risk for heat-related illnesses. This video explains what to be aware of, how to prevent heat sickness and how to respond if it does occur.

A complete discussion of essential decontamination procedures, including the surrender of weapons, removing PPE, and physical rehabilitation wraps up the video. Prepare your law enforcement team to anticipate and deal with the limitations of PPE when responding to incidents in which hazardous chemicals, vapor, biological agents, and radioactive particles may be present by requiring viewing of this video training program annually.
