PREPARE TO GO THROUGH HELL AND BACK.
PARTICULARLY THAT LAST PART.
More than 50% of line-of-duty deaths and 30% of firefighter injuries can be attributed to stress, overexertion and a general lack of fitness. BlastMask enables you to conduct multiple training and fitness exercises (with and without SCBA packs) that can dramatically improve your tactical preparedness.
As your familiarity with equipment increases, so does confidence and performance. BlastMask is an effective and ideal tool for firefighter recruitment, physical ability testing, and orientation.
SAVING LIVES IS WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT.

BlastMask also saves the manpower and time it takes to refill SCBA bottles, keeping resources ready for real emergencies. Not to mention it decreases wear and tear on expensive SCBA regulators.
