Dräger PARAT 5550 Fire Escape Hood
The Dräger PARAT 5550 is a fire escape hood packaged in a flame retardant holster. It was specifically developed for fire rescue teams for use in victim rescue. The main advantage of the PARAT 5550 Fire Escape Hood is it’s ease of use.
As it is not always clear in advance whether or not people are inside the scene of the incident, it is recommended to carry a fire escape hood at all times. For at least 15 minutes, a fire escape hood protects against highly toxic fire-related gases, like CO, as well as vapours and particles. Carried at all times, the PARAT 5550 can also save lives in a respiratory protection emergency, for example in the event of a disconnected air supply.
