REMOVE THE CASUALTY'S OVERGARMENT JACKET
a. Cut the sleeves and unzip the jacket.
(1) Cut the sleeve from the cuff up to the shoulder of the jacket, and then
through the collar.
(2) Keep the cuts close to the inside of the arms so that most of the sleeve
material can be folded outward (see Figure 3-3).
Figure 3-3. Removing the protective over-garment jacket.
Dip and scrub the scissors in 5 percent calcium hypochlorite
solution before doing each cut to avoid contaminating the inner
garment or the casualty's skin.
b. Unzip the jacket (or cut alongside the jacket's zipper).
(1) Roll the chest sections to the respective sides, with the inner black liner
outward. Carefully tuck the cut jacket between the patient's arm and his sides.
