Open-Circuit Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus

AEL Category: 01. Personal Protective Equipment

A self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) is an essential piece of personal protective equipment for the first responder community and for industry.

Emergency responders use SCBAs to enter oxygen-deficient and other extremely hazardous environments. SCBAs can weigh more than 30 pounds and require special training to use safely.
