Ensure your SCBA cylinder is snapped in
By Mark van der Feyst
Some SCBA manufacturers are designing air packs with a quick-connect attaching the cylinder to the high-pressure hose feeding the reducing block. This quick-connect makes it faster and easier to change cylinders.
Ensure that the connection is made between the cylinder and the receiver by pulling back on the cylinder valve in an attempt to pull it out. If connected properly, it won't come out.
