Firefighters face many risks during their interventions.
Explosion and intoxication risks due to the presence of specific gases are always real and, therefore, fire brigades must be able to assess them both for their own safety and that of the population.
Firemen can rely on their toxicity and explosiveness detection and measuring devices.
Whether during fires in enclosed or semi-enclosed spaces, outdoor fires generating a lot of smoke (vehicle fire) or in situations where a toxic atmosphere is suspected (leak of a hazardous substance), firefighters can use open or closed-circuit self-contained breathing apparatus.
All tandems are equipped with them and check each other (pressure, whistle, airtightness) by opening the valve, breathing a puff or two, reading the pressure on the manometer, closing the valve until the whistle blows and then feel the tightness as the mask rests on the face.
