Proactive Firefighting

A New Solution for Mine Fires

For miners only equipped with SCSRs, escape is the only solution during a mine fire. Dräger’s ChargeAir system provides miners with SCBAs so they can proactively fight a fire before it becomes uncontrollable. Once a fire is recognized, miners can don their SCSR and escape to the nearest ChargeAir SCBA cache. After donning an SCBA, the miner has the ability to re-enter the hazardous area and put out the fire. If the fire cannot be contained, the miner can return to the ChargeAir system to refill the SCBA and escape the mine. Having the option to control and extinguish fires can minimize damage and allow a mine to return to production much faster.
