The first step of the process is a detailed inspection to sort out damaged and visibly soiled masks. The remaining masks are disinfected for 60 minutes with hot steam at a temperature of 100 degrees followed by another visual inspection, shrink wrapping and their returning to the respective organization.
Through this process and other assistance, the CBRN Defence Force supports the Austrian population.
