Stop Opening Up Your Gas Masks, People!

.

The Israeli Home Front Command has asked citizens to stop opening up their gas mask kits.

With tensions high around Syria, the distribution of gas masks to Israeli citizens has tripled.

Many citizens have been taking their kits home, and opening them up (and noticing there’s no Atropine included, this time around).

The gas masks aren’t toys. The Home Front Command has asked that the kits only be opened up upon receiving specific instructions from the IDF to do so.

    How will the IDF instructions be publicized? Being relatively new with minimal Hebrew, no radio or TV, how will we know when it is time to open the kits and get ready?

  2. Ethan Perks says:

    And I thouht they have to be fitted? I tried one on at a military show.

  3. truthseekr says:

    It would be nice if the Israeli leaders would realize that they’ve brought in thousands of olim from many countries and few have mastered Hebrew by now. We’ve lots of people who are only functional in English, Russian, Ethiopian, French etc. There needs to be some kind of program which encourages “veterans” to help the olim in time of war.  Then the shelter problem; many Israelis have stored stuff in the shelters, which is illegal but not enforced,so we have no shelter in our building. The stairwell is about it. They say not to open the gas masks, so we have no idea how they work. We can put on a gas mask, but what is atropine anyway? Are the instructions in Hebrew? No wonder Israel needs G-d. The govt runs drills, but mostly for schools. What about the elderly at home alone?  It’s definitely Hashem who has prevented Israelis from being hurt more in the past attacks.

    Just out of curiosity, what's the big deal about opening them? I remember getting mine in the run up to the first gulf war, and they were just as particular about this. Why?

  7. dvdcnl says:

    In the US Army, we had to have them fitted and ready to be put on.  When a gas attack is happening is not the time to take them out of a box and wondering how does this thing go on my face.

  8. The filter is sealed and if you open the seal it will need to be replaced sooner than if you leave it sealed. The kit also contains pre-loaded automatic anti-nerve-gas syringes which are dangerous if used when the is no nerve gas. You might lose bits of the kit also if you open the box.

    Yitzchok Mickler Okay, that's fair, I guess.
