CAS Clean Air System Saves Even The Future Life Of The Firefighters

After completing the entire life protecting people from fire incidents as well as many other emergency situations without thinking about the potential risk they are taking with their life, what we give a firefighter in return? A crest or maybe a medal along with a letter of appreciation, some claps and most over, the higher risk of several lethal cancer types specially testicle cancer and prostate cancer. Even more, we leave them in a more potential condition to have children with congenital heart disease than general people. Is that really we want? Of course not.

CAS is an air cleaning mask concept that has been specially designed for firefighters with the ability to filter particles smaller than 2.5 microns which can be most commonly found in burning spots and are the most hazardous for human health. Moreover, this innovative mask facilitates the firefighter to communicate with others through voice amplifier and transparent window. CAS features a tube that automatically kicks compressed air in as soon as it detects a sudden increase of the carbon monoxide level with the help of the carbon monoxide meter inside the mask and triggers a signal to notify the firefighter about it. If the level goes too high to handle, it starts feeding the firefighter clean air from the tube placed in the backside of the neck to ensure smooth breathing. Besides, the mask can be used parallel with a helmet through the easy to attach and remove clasp.

This is a very interesting prototype. Please feel free to contact me if you need real life testers and more input. Have you tested this much? What does the mask that covers the remainder of the face look like? I don't really see that part.

What about the rest of the face?

    Dave says: April 9, 2014

    I was wondering the same exact thing. Smoke hurts like hell when it gets in your eyes. A face shield won't do all the work, but goggles might be alright. I don't like the idea of "sensors" detecting something. Last thing I want is the sensors to fail or something while inside a building or about to go into one. I'll stick my traditional mask and bottle.
