gas mask info, filters, etc

Post by Brunt The Grunt » Mon Mar 09, 2020 1:24 pm

bit of a longshot here. Can't remember what forum I was on but there was a website about gas mask, filters, which ones to stay away from, lot #'s for bad filters, even had info on filters that may not even work for NBC/ CBRN anymore due to expiration but recommended for volcanic ash.

this sound familiar to anyone?
You see them on the street. You watch them on TV.
You might even vote for one this fall.
You think they're people just like you.
But your wrong. Dead wrong.

Hmmm... It does ring a bell for me and I'm thinking it was on this site about 10 years ago, but I could be misremembering. I'm an old-fart and the memory isn't the greatest anymore. Have you tried using our search feature to look?

A 2019 article

A link to 3m on Corona virus filtration:

Remember a gas mask alone is rarely adequate. You will need full body coverage that is impervious to the the threat, practice using the PPE. Proper it and decontamination suitable to the risk. Further some risks require self contained breathing gear (SCBA) along with the proper coverage.
