The Postal Service responded to the 2001 anthrax attacks by adding bio-hazard detection equipment to large sorting facilities and creating dangerous-mail response teams. Specially-trained inspectors wear hazardous-materials suits, such as this, when gathering evidence in potentially contaminated environments.

Suit on loan from the United States Postal Inspection Service, Dangerous Mail Investigations and Homeland Security Group.
