Fire-fighting equipment

Draeger has announced that the London Fire Brigade has placed with it a substantial order, encompassing PSS 7000 breathing apparatus sets, together with FPS 7000 face masks, PSS Bodyguard 7000 electronic monitoring systems, and PSS Merlin Telemetry boards. Believed to be unique, the order also includes newly developed 8-litre, 300-bar cylinders, which are said to provide half an hour working duration at 50 litres/minute breathing rate.

Perry Jones, sales and marketing director at Draeger (left in the picture), comments: “By choosing the Draeger PSS range, the LFB has selected a system that will successfully meet its needs today while continuing to grow to meet its needs well into the future. Combining innovative comfort and performance that has been borne from years of product research and development, the PSS system is the result of our work with different brigades in all kinds of applications. Bringing real-time monitoring to the fore, it has also helped revolutionise communications, as well as fire-fighter safety.”

The contract was awarded through the Firebuy framework. To find out more about these and other Draeger fire-related products, telephone David Fenton on 01670 352891.
