Shelters, Chemical/Biological/Radioactive Particle Protection
Definition : Shelters that can be easily transported and rapidly deployed to provide temporary housing and protection from biological and/or chemical agents and from breathing of radioactive particulates; they do not offer protection from radiation. These shelters typically consist of a soft impermeable canvas with supporting columns, an electric power unit, and a control unit that provides heating, cooling, ventilation, and filtration of contaminating (e.g., chemical, biological) agents and/or radioactive particles. Chemical/biological protection shelters are usually over pressured to prevent any contaminated air from entering.
