E-ONE, INC., a member of the REV Group, recently completed a chemical, biological, radioactive, and nuclear (CBRN) incident vehicle for delivery to China. The CBRN vehicle is designed for quick-response teams in contamination incidents that involve chemical, biological, radioactive, or nuclear substances. The vehicle is a 17-foot combo rescue built on a four-door European chassis.
It is designed with a safe cabin to accommodate three people. The safe breathing room includes a positive-pressure air filtration system that prevents contaminated air from getting into the cabin to safeguard occupants. The CBRN incident vehicle is equipped with multiple compartments to carry the necessary tools and equipment for detection and decontamination.
MSA SAFETY INCORPORATED has announced that its G1 integrated thermal imaging camera (TIC), which gives fire departments the opportunity to cost effectively equip every firefighter with thermal imaging technology, has received third-party certification as being compliant with NFPA 1981, Standard on Open-Circuit Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA) for Emergency Services (2013 ed.). With this approval, MSA can begin shipping its integrated TIC immediately.
MSA’s integrated TIC is built into the firefighter’s SCBA. Incorporating TIC technology directly into the SCBA provides multiple advantages, such as an auto-on feature that activates the camera once the SCBA is pressurized. Additionally, the TIC is driven by the G1 SCBA’s single integrated power source, which eliminates the need for additional batteries. This accessory is compatible with any G1 SCBA, including the more than 60,000 units in use at fire departments around the world.
