OTIS AIR NATIONAL GUARD BASE, MASS -- During the January drill more than eight airmen from the 102nd Security Forces Squadron conducted pepper spray training to familiarize themselves with the affects of the spray and ensure that they can still perform their duties, despite coming into contact with the spray .
Airmen took their turn standing in front an instructor before being sprayed with Cap-Stun pepper-spray. Each airman then confronted an aggressor, their goal was to maintain control of the situation and subdue the aggressor. Once the situation was under control escorts quickly brought the airmen over to an aid-station to remove the pepper-spray residue and to try to alleviate its effects.
