This is a shame, also people need to bring gas masks - you can get them a surplus store for cheap.

Actually, they're kind of pricey. And, a lot of those outdated military gas masks at army/navy surplus shops have filters that are either past their expiration date or contain carcinogens including asbestos. If you buy one, buy a brand new one. And, I'd recommend buying your own filters so you know for a fact they're new and work properly.
For those of you who can't put that kind of money into a gas mask, you can use a handkerchief soaked in either apple cider vinegar or lemon juice. Saturate it, fold it up, put it in a sandwich bag, and keep it in your pocket. Regular work goggles with duct tape over the vents should be enough to protect your eyes.
If we do get gassed and you don't have one, find one of the medics. We keep some on hand. But, it's hard for us to fit very many pairs of goggles in our load-out. Certainly not enough for everyone. So, I would encourage everyone to bring these items for themselves to help take a load off of us. We still don't have many medics.

We're working on a new gas mask recipe made from surgical masks and activated charcoal. It seems to make perfect sense in theory, but we haven't tested it yet. So, once we whip some up and test them, we'll let you know if it's a good option.
