Step 1: Inventory - Before taking over anything, ensure you PHYSICALLY see the equipment you signed for. No hand receipts in its place. If it is in Calibrations or a section signed for it, wait until you physically have it in your hand. Thoroughly check serial numbers. Don't have somebody else read the numbers; this could save you big money and problems in the long run.
IMPORTANT: When sign your hand receipt for a piece of equipment you get the main items with their serial numbers. You must ask for the sub component hand receipts too. That hand receipts covers what your commander is really going to look for when they do 100% layouts. These are the items that supply is tracking you must have for a piece of equipment. This is how they get you for missing stuff. Use your sub component hand receipt and the TM to match the names with the items. Don't let anybody tell you not to worry about, because that next commander or supply NCO might make you pay for it. If you have already signed for everything, then you need to do aShortage Annex (DA 2062) and get that stuff ordered.
Step 2: Organization -
Get your CBRN Room organized. Your CIP checklist is a great guideline to steer your focus on the right areas.
Get with your Supply Room and get about 10 NEW binders with a ton of document protectors. Start making binders that cover everything on your CIP Checklist at a minimum.
Step 2a: Inprocessing-
This will be one of the first things you will be ask to do. It also must be done within 30 days of a Soldier arriving toyour unit.
Prep: M41 PATS, sitting on the table, plugged in, with accessories, ready to go. A blank DA Form 2062, the In/Out-processing Checklist, Optical Insert Memorandum, CBRN Threat Brief (on a clipboard or in binder with a sign-in roster), JSLIST Sizing Charts, tape measure, 5988-E or DA Form 2404.
Catch Up: For those who never done this and need to do the an entire unit, you need to set up stations. Work with other CBRN NCOs and use teamwork.
Depending on the size of the unit, you may do the whole company or a platoon or section at a time. Assign them times, so you don't have a crowded mess. Set up stations.
Station 1 - (CBRN Cage) - Assigned mask, Inprocessing Checklist, and Hand Receipt.
Station 2 - PMCS - DA Form 2404 or 5988-E.
Station 3 - Fitting -Table with a PATS on each side with a chair
Station 4 - CBRN Threat Brief. Paper checker and collector
Step 2b: Chemical Defense Equipment (CDE) Report-
Step 2c: CBRN Standard Operating Procedures (SOP)-
NOTE: Some of you might have an old SOP that still says things like "NBC" instead of "CBRN" or "CAM" instead of "ICAM". EASY FIX!!
Step 1: Open SOP.
Step 2: Hold Ctrl and then push theletter F.
Step 3: (Pop up appears) Click the Tab that says Replace.
Step 4: In the Find What: (Type NBC) and Replace With: (Type CBRN).
Step 5: Click Replace All Button
Step 6: Click OK and then Close. DONE!

Step 3: Maintenance -
Using the Binders: This should be broke down by equipment. Put one copy of all 2404s/5988-Es in the binder (the other goes with the equipment). There should be no DA Form 2404s, but use a 2404 if you don't have 5988-E yet, because everything should be in the SAMS-E. This particular function occurs in the motor pool with the PLL clerk not in supply. The SAMS-E in the motor pool should contain all equipment that requires maintenance in the unit and it keeps the schedule for services and initiates job orders. If not, make an appointment with PLL Clerk to get this done.
>>>>>>>>>>RANDOM CBRN NSNs NEEDED<<<<<<<<<<<
Make sure this doesn't fall to the side. If it is broken, get it fixed. Don't wait till Inspectors come by and they see you havent done nothing. Also, sections or platoons don't want to do training with broken equipment. Ensure you certifiy your operators, then reflect it on a memorandum. Assign them according to the MTOE. This will help reduce the amount of broken equipment coming back from training.
Step 4: Training -
Your hardest job is getting CBRN training conducted. You have to sell your job and its importance in the unit's mission. Get your training that needs to be conducted organized. The best way to do it is focus on the Platoon's training. Getting the entire company at one time is very difficult unless you make CBRN STX lanes. So, get some one on one time with PSGs and ask what they are doing and see if you can combine the training or if you can get an hour of their time during Sergeant's Time Training.
When conducting training, be professional and make it worth their time.
Use your imagination, for example what I did as a CBRN NCO:
Task: React to Chemical Attack
I get them all in formation and split them up into teams to go through my station. Tell them if you ALL pass the task, then you won't teach the class (that usually gets them motivated). Prior to them walking off, have your AI bust a Chem Light on an E-tool or a piece of equipment; you can also put a CBRN Marking Kit in the woods. Have your AI lay on the ground with their mask half off and shaking. Then they usually react by stopping in place and putting mask and all of gear, instead of seeking cover.
Next, group you have to change it up.Pull one Soldier to the side and have put some Alka-Seltzer in their mouth and fall to the ground and start shaking. Then kill the Squad Leader. They usually forget everybody behind. Or just stand there in shock on what to do. You can always combine them both. Then since not everybody passed, then you may begin the class. These are just ideas.
Must #1: Get on the Training Schedule!!
Must #2: Be professional when you instruct (no slang or cursing)
Must #3: Sign-in Roster
Must #4: Location...find somewhere OUTSIDE.
Must #5: Conduct an AAR
If training that is on the training schedule is ever cancelled, the do a Memorandum for Record stated why the training was canceled and a tentive date it has been rescheduled for. Ensure it is signed by you're company commander. This covers you when your not getting support andit may get you partial points on CIPs.
CBRN Training Management Binder
All training conducted should be documented and stapled together using the form examples below:
Step 4a: Conducting a CS Chamber-
Step 5: Command Inspection Program -
This is your bread and butter. This is what the Company grades you on. You will get little support on this, until the last minute. It is usually not the priority. The key to passing a CIP with a commendable rating is to get a copy of the last CIP (either from the person you're replacing or from Battalion). If you are not unsuccessful with this; no sweat. You have three options: Have Battalion conduct a courtesy inspection, have your CBRN Officer conduct the inspection, or you do it yourself.
First thing is to get a copy of the most up to date CIP Checklist. A good way to find out is go to the last page and find out who the inspector is and call them and verify that you're up to date. This person you MUST call if you have any questions. They will be more then willing to help. The checklist will be long and might cause you to get frustrated, don't. Take it section at a time. Highlight in one color what you have, one color what you need to do, and one color where you don't understand what they are asking for. This will help organize the madness.
Now you're ready to get started. Get you a computer to use. Start building a folder, "CBRN CIP"; this is going to be everything for CIPs. Basically what I have built here. This will help for future inspections.
When you laying out data, lay it out in the order according to the Inspection Checklist. For example, regulations should be laid out by the checklist, not always in numerical order. If you haveregulations on a CD or your CPU its still counts as having the regulation. Don't try ordering it, unless you are going to truly need a hard copy for training. Most cases you just need to print out the pages you need. Then data (memos, SOP, etc) down the list. This shows the inspector, you are organized and have nothing to hide. When you lay out your equipment, layout all components, ensure everything is dress right dress with the 5988-E and Operator TM beside it. At the front of each row of equipment, have its Equipment Maintenance Binder laid out (see Step #3). If they don't have a certain CBRN equipment item on checklist, don't lay it out, but always be ready for them to look at it and in your cabinets.
Step 5a: Radiation Inspection-
Very easy to pass..... Have your Radiation signs posted, Additional Duty Orders, Radiation SOP signed, get a roll-up of ALL radioactive equipment for your level (Brigade/Battalion/Company).
Step 6: Your mission and support -
A lot of Soldiers have difficulties with support and completing missions or inventories. This might help. You need to attend all training meeting. If you have training to conduct or not. You are a vital piece to the company. It doesnt hurt to get information and get your face out there. You can even talk to PSGs there and offer your help to conduct NBC training. Support them and they will support you. A very big thing for you to do is earn your respect and you will get respect. Meaning, if you do the training with, for example 11Bs, and respect there job by taking the training seriously, most of the time they will return the favor. Try to do there job better then them if possible. If somebody is giving a class on the radio, then you need to get educated on it prior to class. You want to show you are competent and capable to perform and you expect the same from them. Finally, don't forget to ask for help. Go to that training meeting and explain the need for Soldiers, the amount of personnel needed, report time, and approximate time they will be complete.
