NEW Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA)

The Town of Peshtigo fire department is in year two of a multi-year project to replace and upgrade older air packs, most of which are 20-25 years old and no longer in compliance with NFPA standards. Additionally, all existing carbon-fiber air cylinders will either reach their 15-year end-of-life within the next several years or have already expired, meaning they will also need to be replaced. Our overall inventory of SCBA will also be reduced as part of this initiative.
Six new Scott X3-Pro air packs were purchased late last year using budgeted capital funds. Two additional air packs were purchased this year giving the fire department eight new packs. The new SCBA are designed with enhanced safety features, are certified to meet current NFPA standards and have been upgraded to include higher air pressure and longer duration air supply. Eight older air packs that are currently twelve years old are expected to be replaced within the next five years. Five remaining older air packs will be taken out of service, reducing the total inventory to sixteen air packs.
