What’s new with the NFPA 2018

Although similar to the 2013 edition, some of the significant changes included in the 2018 edition are:

  • The connection of the LDV to the full-face mask includes two independent release buttons. Both buttons must be pressed simultaneously in order to disengage the LDV.
  • Pneumatics perform at a greater range of environmental temperatures.
  • The previously used Buddy Breather (with universal male and female connectors), is replaced with the Universal Emergency Breathing Supply System option with its 40″ connection hose to assure mutual aid, no matter the 2018 Edition SCBA manufacturer.
  • Proven technology combines comfort with performance
  • Outstanding resistance to heat, impact, and chemicals
  • Easy maintenance and service
  • Integrated, versatile hose routing
  • Wide variety of system configurations and accessories
  • Choice of electronic monitoring options: Dräger Sentinel 7000 or 1500
  • Integrated systems reduce risk and increase versatility
  • Easy maintenance to lower cost of ownership
  • Innovative slide-and-lock mechanism for fast and easy harness assembly and disassembly
  • Harness detaches from the backplate without the use of tools
  • First stage reducer snap-fit connection allows pneumatics to be fitted or removed quickly and easily
  • Hose clips push in and out to allow swift removal of hoses from the harness pads for cleaning
  • Chemical-resistant harness and waist belt design prevent excessive water absorption and reduce cleaning and drying time
  • Standard batteries, no manufacturer-required overhaul, and few replacement parts contribute to a lower total cost of ownership over the life of the SCBA
  • Integrated safety systems monitor air supply time
  • A PASS device
  • Visual and audible warnings and alarms
  • Streamlined design that reduces snag points
  • Intuitive push-button operation for ease of use
  • Configurable settings to suit individual preferences
