Firefighters invited to try new SCBAs at Firehouse Expo


NASHVILLE, TN- Dräger will show the newly certified SCBA to firefighters attending Firehouse Expo in Nashville on October 10, 11 and 12. Visitors should stop by booth 317 to try on the most comfortable SCBA ever.

“We look forward to giving firefighters the opportunity to experience our newest SCBA for themselves,” said Paul Tarter, product manager for Dräger SCBAs and an active-duty firefighter himself. “We’re confident firefighters will consider this the most ergonomic unit available today – able to fit almost anyone, no matter his or her height or build.”

Several components come together to form an SCBA ensemble, including some of the following: Carrying systems (PSS® 7000 or PSS® 5000), a fullface mask (FPS® 7000), monitoring unit (Sentinel® 7000), and communications (FPS® -COM 5000 or FPS® -COM 7000). As a part of the certification process, each part is tested to assure the whole performs per the NFPA standards. For more information, visit
