Summary: How a typical family should use their gas masks.
Description: A man invites an official (Max Adrian) he meets at a bus stop back to his house to give a talk on correct gas mask usage. The official explains to husband and wife the proper method of putting on a gas mask, and how to carry out a regular check on the mask. Their daughter is taught how to put on a child's mask, and the operation of a baby's gas helmet is demonstrated with their baby boy. The maid is shown how to tie her spectacles on outside her gas mask. The official shows how to clean and care for the mask and finally everyone practises putting theirs on again.
