The current analysis characterizes chemical protective clothing (CPC) that would be available to civilian emergency personnel responding to possible nerve or vesicant chemical warfare agent release with off-post consequences.
Currently available commercial protective garments found in the public domain were identified through contacts with manufacturers, regulatory bodies, and distributors of protective clothing, as well as civilian emergency response personnel who use CPC.
When appropriate data were available, individual protective clothing ensembles were further characterized by chemical resistance data for specific agents or their simulants.
