Try on a Dräger SCBA and Feel the Difference
The self-contained breathing apparatus, or SCBA, is the foundational tool that provides the greatest amount of airway protection from toxic gas and harmful particulates resulting from the fire. It’s essential for modern firefighting and today’s complex fire grounds.
When considering an SCBA, American firefighters cited comfort as the most important characteristic than any other. Dräger SCBAs earn the distinction of the most ergonomically comfortable. Try on a PSS 7000 and you'll agree.
As the inventor of the modern-day SCBAs specifically for firefighters, this year marks 80 years since that first Dräger SCBA. The Dräger SCBA provides the most robust breathing protection combined with unparalleled ergonomic comfort.
Dräger proudly offers the latest SCBA with extensive updates that earned the 2019 Edition of NFPA 1981 and 1982 certifications.
