Dräger showcases firefighting equipment


From June 20 to 25, Dräger will present its new portfolio of products and digital solutions for firefighters and incident commanders at INTERSCHUTZ 2022 in Hanover.

“We want to show what modern firefighting equipment of the future looks like. Our new products place the focus firmly on safety, comfort, and connectivity so as to protect and relieve the pressure on incident commanders at all times. The many new possibilities for connectivity in particular give incident commanders a better overview and the reliability of knowing how their teammates and colleagues are at all times,” says Leif Brünslow, booth manager and head of marketing for fire services and authorities at Dräger.

New products create a connected system

The new system from Dräger includes a self-contained breathing apparatus, a NANO compressed air cylinder, a helmet for fire and rescue services, two thermal imaging cameras, and a digital respiratory protection monitoring solution for added safety during rescue missions.

– The PSS AirBoss self-contained breathing apparatus is designed with ergonomics in mind and is extremely lightweight, thanks to modern materials and the new NANO compressed air cylinder. Three-level height adjustment and a pivoting and sliding waist belt ensure greater freedom of movement. Moreover, when connected and used with FireGround, it increases safety at the incident scene.

– FireGround is an ultra-modern respiratory protection monitoring system that is connected to the self-contained breathing apparatus or closed-circuit breathing apparatus. It automatically provides live status information about the device wearers to respiratory protection monitors and incident commanders. The information is clearly displayed in a dedicated cloud service and can be accessed via an app as an add-on.

– Weighing just 1.25 kilograms, the HPS SafeGuard is an extremely lightweight multipurpose helmet for fire and rescue services. Its design combines optimal protection with the highest levels of wearing comfort and has a sporty look.

– The new UCF FireCore will be unveiled at INTERSCHUTZ and is expected to be available in the beginning of 2023. The thermal imaging camera is fixed to the helmet and allows the SCBA wearer to see the image in the mask. Leaving firefighters both hands free, helping them concentrate on their job. The thermal image is always available and provides fast and continuous orientation under zero visibility conditions.

– Dräger will present the BG ProAir, a new generation of positive pressure closed-circuit breathing apparatus, specially designed for longer rescue missions.
