SCBA mini, concept idea, what do you guys think?
Hi all, I am new to this form and also relatively new to firefighting. I had an idea for a miniature SCBA that would essentially be used as an extraction tool. It would consist of a respirator style mask (like the kind used for wood working/ painting) but instead of air filters on the sides, it has miniature air bottles and a regulator on it. The idea behind it is that if you found a victim in a building, and extraction would take them through thick smoke, this would give them a couple of minutes of fresh air and give the FF some extra time to get them out of the building. This was just an idea that I had and I was wondering what you guys thought. This would also in theory, fit in the pocket of your jacket.
