CBRN Aircrew Training

Capt. Benjamin Deriggi, 96th Air Refueling Squadron, has his gasmask straps tightened by Master Sgt. Carlos Diaz, Hawaii Air National Guard 199th Fighter Squadron, during an emergency preparedness training event Sept. 5, 2014, at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Hawaii. Deriggi and other 96th ARS members participated in the chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear training that ensures they are prepared to operate in a contaminated environment. Diaz and his team from the 15th OSS and 199th Fighter Squadron aircrew flight equipment sections manned decontamination stations as part of the Aircrew Contamination Control Area, which aircrew members had to pass through to conclude the training. Note: In a real-world CBRN environment, the AFE crew would also be in individual protective equipment. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Alexander Martinez)
