  • Winter's Unseen Trap

    Dec 11, 2013

    As an officer and aviator in the U.S. Army, I -- like most of you -- have been exposed to a significant amount of safety training. We've all learned that the unseen hazard is oftentimes the most dangerous. For example, Field Manual 3-04.301(1-301), Aeromedical Training for Flight Personnel, highlights Type I (unrecognized) spatial disorientation as the most dangerous because the hapless aviator has no idea they are disoriented, and thus, takes no action to correct the danger facing them. Carbon monoxide is similarly insidious. Whether it is exhaust leaking into your vehicle, or perhaps a propane heater warming a tent, carbon monoxide takes its prey with no warning. However, this article is not about spatial disorientation or carbon monoxide. There is another hazard that's similarly treacherous and just as veiled. Unfortunately, I found myself in its trap on my way home from drill one weekend.
