At FDIC International 2016, MSA plans to showcase its latest plans for next-generation firefighting technology. “The response to our revolutionary G1 SCBA continues to be overwhelming, and for that we couldn’t be more proud,” says Samantha D’Uva, manager, public relations, MSA. “This year we invite you to continue that journey with us and dare to compare the G1 SCBA with your own expectations about what an SCBA should be. We promise you’ll be surprised—and excited—about what the future holds for the G1 platform.”
D’Uva continues, “Our commitment to the fire service—When you go in…We go in with you—is more than just words. It’s what drives us. So when we developed the G1 SCBA, we did so with the promise to provide firefighters with the latest technology available to help protect them when their lives are on the line.”
D’Uva says that while the G1 has been the single largest development effort in MSA’s history, introducing this product to the market just wasn’t enough. “So we continue to push the envelope, and this year we’ll be showcasing our latest plans for next-generation firefighting technology, which will all be built into the G1, she says. “These concepts represent the next step in our vision to create a truly unique and versatile platform that can keep up with the pace of technological advancements over the years ahead.”
In addition to what’s happening in the company’s booth, MSA is proud to be the official TIC sponsor of the show and a key sponsor of the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation 2016 Stair Climb, honoring the 15th anniversary of September 11. “In fact, we invite all stair climbers to visit the MSA booth to receive a free commemorative 9/11 patch, featuring a custom-embroidered design,” D’Uva says.
Also on Thursday, April 21, will be the MSA Block Party at the intersection of S. Capitol Ave. and W. Georgia Street. Attendees will have a chance to win a Cairns Helmet for themselves or an Evolution 6000 TIC for their local fire department. All are welcome from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.!

Regarding FDIC International, D’Uva says, One of the greatest aspects of FDIC is that it provides endless opportunities for product research, relationship building, and networking. Attending FDIC is impressive because the latest innovations in firefighter safety are all at your fingertips!”
She sums up, “Firefighters put themselves in danger every day to keep our communities safe, and for MSA, our goal is to develop and provide these brave men and women with the most advanced safety equipment that helps protect them when their lives are on the line. Having a presence at FDIC allows us to come face to face with those that put their trust in the MSA brand day in and day out.
“All of us at MSA have a true passion for what we do—and we love FDIC! From the camaraderie and the sharing of best practices and training techniques to uncovering the latest in life-saving technology, we look forward to this show—and this opportunity—each year!
