It is anticipated in this problem that for security reasons the present Civilian Defense Program should not have access to the buildings of this tgonoy. 1. To protect the perconnel against secondary irradiation in the event of an underwater or ground burst, it is suggested that each person sasignod to that particular area be supplied with the :alloy- ing clothings Comeralls worn over ordinary uniforms* These could be washed or destroyed if badly contaminatod. b. If there is any chance that the worker would become con. teminated in a washing-down operation, rubber mite which cover the entire body 'would be necessary* These rubber uniforms (410.39) oorad be decontaminated and reused, o* rootgear of heavy canna which slip over the shoes should be provided for workers in a contaminated area. 4. Rubber gloves for ordinary use. Hard leather gloves for rough work. sp. Headgear should consist of a tighteritting cap made of pliable material covering the entire hair bearing area of the head. f. Respirators, mask' covering the nose and mouth of the type developed as a protection against chemical warfare agents, are satisfactory in preventing the inhalation of radioactive dust particlee. If the amount of duet is very high, it will be necessary to supply the worker with a respirator hood (included in uniform nbm above).

This system should be w to permit the passage of a litter and a monitor in the event that the patient could not decontaminate himself. At the point of entrance, all clothing showing any ovi dance of contamination should be removed. All eyeglasses shoeing any evidence of contamination should also be re ? This includes exist watches, personal effects, false teeth, partial plates, artificial limbs, etc. These may* be placed In storage vaults, where they might lose their radioactivity over a given length of time, or decontaminate by soap and eater or other methods. It might be more expedient in some cases, i.e., clothing, to destroy them. While in the decontamination showers, the individual 'will use at least eight chances of soap and pass through at least t series of shower sprays in a straight line. The soap water routine is an excellent method for removal of most every form of radiological contaminations Upon leaving the decontaminetion shower, t n surveyed be a member of the monitor teem, and given a new set of clothes, etc. Zn the case of a casualty, all contaminated splints dree ings and gear should be removed upon entering the decon shower, and these would be reissued at the point of exit The disposal of the water in this room is very impo The drains should be so constructed that the contaminated waste any be properly monitored to ascertain their potency.
