Multigas Detectors- What Do You Use?
Like the title says, looking for info on what multigas detectors you all have expirience with at your departments. My volunteer department is looking at replacing our way outdated and nonworking meter with a new model. Currently we are checking into the MSA Altair.
If anyone has any other meters to suggest or expriences with the MSA I am all ears!

We use the Q-Rae 4 gas monitor. Small, easy to operate, good warranty, replacement parts always seem available.IAFF

We have the Scott Scout Mulltigas meter on all of our rigs. Easy to use, easy to calibrate."The education of a firefighter and the continued education of a firefighter is what makes "real" firefighters. Continuous skill development is the core of progressive firefighting. We learn by doing and doing it again and again, both on the training ground and the fireground."

The more I look into it I am thinking of going the Rae Systems route. We have a tech on the neigboring department who could do repairs and calibration for us right here in town. And they are comparible in price...
