BIRMINGHAM, England, May 2 /PRNewswire/ — From fire protective clothing, helmets and respirators to high-tech communications, monitoring and detection equipment for first responders

MSA Safety Incorporated (NYSE: MSA), a global leader in firefighter safety equipment and technology, will take center stage at the upcoming Emergency Services Show (ESS) in Birmingham on September 21-22, showcasing its full range of Introduce state-of-the-art, compatible personal protective equipment (PPE) for first responders. The MSA team will demonstrate how its fire protective clothing, helmets, breathing apparatus, advanced communications and gas detection systems work together seamlessly across a range of different applications.

Show attendees are invited to explore the MSA Connected Firefighter Platform, a new suite of advanced safety technologies that work together to dramatically improve firefighter monitoring, accountability and communication. Two key components of the platform are MSA’s LUNAR® Connected Device and FireGrid® software services.

The multifunctional handheld LUNAR offers customized thermal imaging and various other innovative features designed to improve firefighter safety and accountability. These innovations include MSA’s proprietary Firefighting Assisting Search Technology (FAST) network, which alerts and guides team members to injured team members.

Thanks to its cloud connectivity, LUNAR also provides the incident commander with an overview of what is happening on site by merging data from other MSA devices, such as e.g. B. the M1 Self Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA) recently selected by the London Fire Brigade as their new respiratory protection system of choice. In use, LUNAR can transmit vital SCBA data such as cylinder air pressure, battery status, and various alarm indicators. The FireGrid component enables incident commanders to assess and manage multiple situations in real time from any location.

At this year’s ESS, MSA will showcase several enhancements to these cutting-edge technologies and other innovative products, including:

* M1 Controller – LUNAR Compatibility: Utilizing the M1 Controller’s built-in Bluetooth capabilities, cylinder air pressure and other alarm indicators can be collected from LUNAR and transmitted to FireGrid to provide incident commanders with real-time scene information. In addition, incoming alarms from the incident command center (e.g. evacuation requests) can be forwarded via LUNAR to the M1 control module, prompting firefighters to evacuate the building immediately. The M1 Controller and LUNAR® devices are designed to work together as a system – when paired, LUNAR’s motion alarm capabilities default to the M1 Controller, so firefighters don’t have to manage two devices to Motion detection to be distracted.

* FireGrid® Mapping: By leveraging the GPS capability in devices like LUNAR, dispatchers can now monitor their crew’s location in the FireGrid application.

* Fotokite Partnership: Fotokite’s drone technology will be on display and demonstrate its aerial video capabilities, which will be integrated into MSA’s connected fire services platform in future development projects to improve situational awareness.

* MSA Bristol popular protective clothing: on display will be EOS, the structural firefighting system for the ultimate protection from dust particles, and the brand new Bristol X4, specifically designed to meet the needs of fire departments in continental Europe. Both product lines are made with the latest and highest quality fabric combinations from leading fiber and fabric manufacturers such as WL Gore, PBI Performance Products and Hainsworth. They meet the requirements of the CEN standard EN469 level 2 and feature an ergonomic design and a streamlined fit that reduces bulk and weight while maintaining a full range of motion.

* Industry-leading firefighting helmets: MSA will be showcasing a range of helmets for firefighters, such as the iconic Gallet F1XF, as well as recently developed helmet solutions for a wider range of first responders, including police and paramedics. The Gallet F2XR features a modular and versatile design with a variety of accessories suitable for use in a variety of rescue operations such as: B. firefighting in the wild, technical rescue, police operations and medical emergencies can be adapted.

MSA Safety’s presence at ESS will be its largest and most impressive yet, according to Jason Traynor, General Manager of MSA Global Fire Service Products. “It’s exciting to be back at the Emergency Services Show and to have so much to show visitors,” he said our extensive range of advanced, connected solutions – all working together to improve the safety of firefighters.”
