Preventing & Responding
to SCBA Emergencies

April 14, 2009—4:00 PM EDT

While SCBA emergencies are rare, firefighters must be prepared for any form of malfunction or mechanical failure that might put them at risk during operations. This program will describe some of the most common SCBA emergencies a firefighter might encounter and the required actions to safely overcome an SCBA emergency. The program will also include an update on how technological developments are setting the stage for improved SCBA operations, including more functional/low-profile designs, telemetry-based monitoring devices, exposed temperatures, PASS alarm activations and much more.
