THE CERTIFICATION FOR SAFE BREATHING AIR:
Breathing air is the most important item of equipment, the basic condition for ensuring safe, certain firefighting when breathing apparatus is used.
“My breathing air is pure.” It’s good if you can be absolutely sure of this. Because in an emergency, you must be able to rely on the fact that each cylinder is filled with perfect breathing air.
In perspective to that considerable responsibility, dedication must be regarded as the key word, especially regarding a subject which is often not recognized or even neglected: the dangers which may arise due to contaminated air. Improper operation of compressors, poorly maintained installations and the use of non-genuine or self-filled filter cartridges may indeed lead to fatalities!
