Rescue assets endure CBRN exercise

During a chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear exercise, Airmen from the 41st Rescue Squadron and 41st Helicopter Maintenance Unit were geared up in mission-oriented protective posture (MOPP) gear to simulate potential conditions they could face while deployed in austere environments, March 28, 2017, at Moody Air Force Base, Ga. While in MOPP gear, Airmen have to deal with claustrophobic conditions, impaired communication and battle the constant threat of heat exhaustion, while completing the mission.
