TASK 23. CAM AND COLPRO CAM

CHEMICAL AGENT MONITOR (CAM) AND COLPRO CAM LOCAL COMMANDER'S GUIDE

◉ CAM and COLPRO CAM monitor for Nerve (G and V) and Mustard (H) agent vapours. They will only respond to V agent temperatures above +5пїЅC.

◉ Use detector paper on suspicious liquids. If skin contamination by liquid agent occurs procedures must be implemented immediately.

◉ UNMASKING IS RISKY. All unmasking in the presence of any hazard should be avoided unless OPERATIONALLY ESSENTIAL. Successive exposure will increase the risk.

◉ When using the Maximum Exposure Time Guide:

● DO NOT unmask or remove IPE without Local Commander's approval.

● Always take the highest reading when the display is fluctuating.

● DO NOT unmask or remove IPE if the bar display is increasing.

● Take frequent readings while troops are unmasked.

● Exposure times within each 24hr cycle can be continuous or broken down into smaller periods providing the maximum exposure time is not exceeded.

● After a total exposure time in a 24hr period has been reached and the hazard persists, wait 24hrs before further exposure.

● Note that the Maximum Exposure Time Guide is for all locations.

◉ If a 1 bar reading does not clear the display in 15 minutes, check background with RVD. If RVD shows clear, carry out unmasking drills.
