INDUSTRY INNOVATIONS: Emergency Air Supply System

Scott Safety's RIT-PAK III
Scott Safety’s RIT-PAK III

Scott Safety’s RIT-PAK III is an all-inclusive emergency air supply system that works in mutual aid situations regardless of SCBA manufacturer. A protective skid plate reduces friction when the system is dragged and makes it easier to identify the orientation of the bag in low visibility environments. Two storage pouches are large enough for rescue tools and rescue rope. The “hi-viz” orange material and reflective stripes improve the visibility of the system, and the RIT-PAK III’s easy-to-remove and adjustable length shoulder/drag strap allows for convenient carrying and dragging. Identifiable handles allow the user to determine the low-pressure side from the high-pressure side of the bag. An external pressure gauge provides pressure indicator lights to mimic those used on the heads-up display on the Air-Pak SCBA. The facepiece is a modified AV-3000 with SureSeal. www.scottsafety.com, 800-247-7257
