AFCEC study gives new life to old chemical defense decon kits

U.S. Air Force Reserve Staff Sgt. Casey Godwin, aircrew flight equipment (AFE) specialist, 327th Operations Support Squadron, pats down Staff Sgt. Michael Hopson, loadmaster, 327th Airlift Squadron, with activated charcoal from a M295 Individual Decontamination Kit during a training scenario. The Air Force Civil Engineer’s Readiness Lab recently determined more than 75,000 expired M295 decontamination kits used in chemical defense ensembles are still effective and can be used, saving the Air Force more than $2.3 million over a four-year period.
