The Truth about Gas Mask

Many people are running out and buying gas masks.  The army surplus stores have sold out.  The Internet is brimming with activity as worldwide demand for some sense of protection from the "highly likely" chemical or biological terrorist attack yet to come.

Are gas masks the answer? Here are a few facts about gas masks:

·Not all gas masks are created equal.

·Military surplus masks are typically not effective against all of the chemical and biological agents that are considered real threats.

·New gas masks with NBC (Nuclear, Biological, Chemical) filters are effective.

·Certain airborne agents may require protective suits to be best protected.
