It is now widely recognised that regular cleaning of PPE is important and helps reduce firefighters’ long-term exposure to harmful contamination.
Most fire and rescue services have two sets of clothing and therefore can use a laundry service to ensure thorough cleaning. It’s not always possible however to use the service for self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) because most firefighters share SCBA and this vital equipment cannot be sent off-site for cleaning in case a major incident occurs. This is where the Solo Rescue® decontamination machine comes in.
We are the UK distributor for Solo Rescue®. It can be installed in the fire station and cleans SCBA in a self-contained, sealed compartment which minimises manual contact with contaminated material. SCBA can be cleaned immediately upon return to the fire station, with the machine successfully removing residues of combustion gases, soot particles and toxins in just a few minutes, and fits in a compact space of less than 1m2.
The durable stainless-steel machines have a swift cleaning cycle, meaning that up to 14 sets of SCBA can be decontaminated in just one hour, considerably improving the speed and efficiency of the cleaning process.
Solo Rescue® decontamination machines can also be used to clean helmets. They are simple to operate, require minimal servicing, and conform to the cleaning requirements of top SCBA brands including Dräger, MSA, Interspiro and SCOTT.
