Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)
What kind of respirator or other equipment should I purchase to defend myself from NBC (nuclear/biological/chemical) attack?
Our answer is "we don't know". That's because neither you nor we know what kind of agent will be used. For example, some gas masks could offer protection against certain chemicals, but a mask alone will be of little use if the material is Sarin, a substance so deadly that less than one drop on exposed skin is a lethal dose.
