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.

  1. 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.

    • Hi, We are working with air purification unit & we want to test and validate the unit & also filter media? can it be done from your side? our company in located in India. Pls help

      thanks & regards

    • Hey Chad, are these in production yet? I think it’s a great design and would love to contract these with you. Message me.


    • 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.

  2. I believe this is designed more for overhaul than anything else and not specifically designed to take the place of your traditional SCBA.

  3. I keep seeing it’s a prototype or concept as far back as 2011 so is it EVER going to make to market so the public can buy it? I’m sure in today’s atmosphere it would sell pretty good. So you’re missing out on a big opportunity not including on other markets that it could be used in. I think someone in one of the comments said something about using it while off-roading. Private Pilots could use it. And like I said before about today’s atmosphere of the Covid19 of course the main reason for it. The fire fighters. So please bring it to market really soon!!!!

  4. I would like to try one as a volunteer firefighter we have a lot of stuff in r own car be great to have one small easy to store
