Firefighters face entering spaces with little to no visibility everyday, so the 'Scott Safety' breathing mask is designed to offer a helping hand.

Existing thermal imaging components are often handheld and bulky, so the 'Scott Safety' mask is designed with the technology built-in to help provide comprehensive functionality.

The 'Scott Safety' mask was debuted at the FDIC International Convention in Indianapolis and could provide firefighters with technology to get civilians and themselves out of harms way quickly.

The thermal imaging technology within the 'Scott Safety' breathing mask allows it to permeate smoke and detect where heat signatures are. These could be people or hidden fires, and the technology will display it to the firefighter on the built-in screen to keep them informed and safe.
