Abstract
In order to investigate the requirement for auxiliary heating by the Canadian Forces, a questionnaire was administered to approximately 1500 CF personnel with experience working outdoors in cold weather. In addition to analyzing the respondents' actual replies, the authors also interpreted the completed questionnaires regarding the need for auxiliary heat. It was concluded that auxiliary heating would be beneficial to more than 50% of personnel with problems associated with working in the cold and that most of these problems were due to cold extremities (hands and feet).
