Chemical Detection and Decontamination
Step 1. Use M8 paper from the M256 chemical agent detector kit or M9 paper to determine if liquid
agent is present on the smoke generator.
Step 2. If exposure to liquid agent is known or suspected, clean exposed skin, clothing, and personal
gear, in that order, using M258A1 kit. Use the buddy system. Wash exposed skin and thoroughly
decontaminate as soon as the tactical situation permits.
Step 3. If the M8 or M9 paper indicates that liquid chemical agent is present on the smoke generator,
use the ABC-Mll or M13 decontamination apparatus for partial decontamination of the smoke generator.
Spray only surfaces that will be touched by crew or operator.
