M26 Decon: Train and License Operators

Dear Editor,

Units should know that M26 decon operators must be trained and licensed to operate and maintain the equipment to prevent injury and/or damage, according to TM 3-4230-238-10 (Jul 09).

Once operators are trained, units should be sure to annotate the training on DA Form 348 and on DA Form 5984-E. And after they are licensed, it’s a good practice to develop unit training plans to ensure the TM, as well as Chapter 7 of AR 600-55, The Army Driver and Operator (SEP19), are being followed at the operator and organizational levels. These actions will enhance unit CBRN readiness.
