Warrior BA for California
Published: 01 September, 2008
One of the largest municipal fire service SCBA orders ever placed in the US has been won by Sperian Respiratory Protection and its distributor LN Curtis & Sons.
The three-year contract to supply the Southern California Area Personal Area Personal Protective Equipment Consortium (SCAPPEC) includes SCBA, SCBA communication components, CBRN PAPRs and other related items.
Approximately 4,200 Sperian Warrior SCBAs and related items will be shipped to departments in the Los Angeles County area.
“During the field evaluation process, firefighters learned first-hand just how effortlessly the Warrior moved with them, providing a tremendous range of motion and manoeuvrability. With the Warrior’s ergonomic design, a firefighter gains up to 30 per cent forward bending motion, 20 per cent greater hip flexion when crawling and two times greater motion when tilting their head back”, said Jeff Shipley, Warrior Product Manager for Sperian.
