Level One Oleoresin Capsicum Contamination

Airman 1st Class DeAaron Alexander receives a level-one contamination of oleoresin capsicum from Senior Airman Daniel Miller Feb. 27, 2015, on Laughlin Air Force Base, Texas. A required certification for all security forces personnel, level-one training consists of spraying an individual from ear to ear, across the brow while eyes are closed, with a half second to one second spray from an OC canister, 36 inches from the subject's face. The individual must then open their eyes, complete the five assessment stations and make it to the decontamination point on their own. Both Airmen are members of the 47th Security Forces Squadron. Alexander is a patrolman and Miller is a non-lethal weapons instructor. (U.S. Air Force photo/Tech. Sgt. Steven R. Doty)
