    IF your department uses Drager scba, post any problems your department maybe having.

    DeKalb County Ga. We are having the following problems. Lung demand valve seperating, face shield spidering, bottle quick connect nut fracturing/breaking, face mask exalation spring preventing proper exalation, regulator malfunctioning and cutting off air flow.

    I have used Drager in the past, let me say not my first choice.... I would jump into any other BA before a DRAG-ER

    Our regulators always seemed to stick into the open position, you would have to smash the regulator to get it to work

    I work for the aforementioned department. I can verify all the same issues. Seen a failure in a fire with one of my own crew. Seen failures that never made it to fires, but failures all the same.
