The New Face of Firefighting

With the launch of the Vision C5 Facepiece with E-Z Flo C5 Regulator 3M Scott builds on its long history of introducing innovative products to firefighters with features that matter. Designed using a platform approach, the Vision C5 facepiece incorporates the latest technology to enhance situational intelligence, while providing a customizable solution to meet the changing needs of today’s firefighter.

The Vision C5 facepiece operates with compatible 3M™ Scott™ Air-Pak™ SCBA, including the latest Air-Pak X3 Pro, compliant to the NFPA 1981, 2018 Edition standard. A wider field of view helps to improve situational intelligence and a single reflex face seal provides a more comfortable fit and greater ease when donning the facepiece. Expanding on the cleanability benefits of the Air-Pak X3 Pro, the Vision C5 offers a redesigned head harness enabling easy removal, without the use of tools, and simplifying the process of machine laundering to assist firefighters with exposure reduction efforts.

Complementary to the new facepiece, the E-Z Flo C5 regulator builds upon the proven design of the E-Z Flo+ with enhancements to key performance areas. Enhanced breathability helps reduce user burden and improve operational efficiencies, while a reduced frequency Vibralert End-of-ServiceTime Indicator (EOSTI) improves two-way radio communications. The heads-up display (HUD) has been recessed into the regulator, with additional icons to provide visual alerts when paired with the Air-Pak X3 Pro SCBA configured with the SEMS II Pro Wireless SCBA Telemetry System. A simple, yet noticeable change is the incorporation of an auto air-saver switch to simplify operation and help prevent inadvertent air loss when the regulator is removed.

The new 3M Scott Vision C5 Facepiece with E-Z Flo C5 Regulator, continues the 3M Scott Fire & Safety’s tradition of providing critical life safety equipment that firefighters can trust to help keep them safe, while they keep our communities safe.”

Respiratory Protection

The Air-Pak™ X3 Pro SCBA is built on a foundation of redundant safety features, providing unparalleled performance to protect the family of firefighters who expect the best in the most demanding conditions, with a focus on enhancing cleanability, comfort, and connectivity to ensure the security and comfort of today’s firefighter.

Designed for future compatibility, the Air-Pak X3 Pro SCBA meets the latest NFPA 1981/1982, 2018 Edition performance requirements.

With the new As Long As You Own It Air-Pak SCBA Warranty, customers will have peace of mind knowing that their most important investment is backed for the lifetime ownership of the product.

Thermal Imaging

From hands-free to tactical and search & rescue, 3M™ Scott™ Fire & Safety has a thermal imager to meet your needs.

When you wear 3M™ Scott™ Fire & Safety Sight, you get more than constant thermal vision. You get your hands back. That’s because unlike other hand-held thermal imaging cameras, Sight uses a small thermal camera mounted to the side of the facepiece. A miniaturized display mounted inside the facepiece allows the firefighter to always see the image without the need for reaching down and handling an imager.

3M™ Scott™ Fire & Safety Sight Pro Package is the next evolution of the industry’s first in-mask, hands-free thermal imaging solution. Pro Package enables new, advanced features to provide firefighters with greater situational awareness during fireground operations.

The 3M Scott V320 Thermal Imager is designed to meet the rigorous demands of today’s firefighting conditions and provides mission-critical information.

The NFPA-compliant X380N thermal imager is the latest addition to the X-Series of thermal imaging solutions.

Accountability / Communication

Communicate clearly and effectively on the fireground and enable communication between responders and incident command with our range of communications and accountability products.

Communicate clearly and effectively on the fireground or en route with the EPIC 3 Radio Interface (RI) Voice Communication System. Enhance tactical and non-tactical communications with on-scene personnel, incident command, and remote dispatch. Working closely with first responders around the world, 3M™ Scott™ Fire & Safety developed the EPIC 3 RI System — voice amplifiers, lapel speaker microphones, specialized accessories, and programming utilities — to meet the demanding conditions on the fireground.

Locate a trapped or downed first responder within a single or multi-story structure quickly and safely with the Pak-Tracker locator system. Available as a stand-alone system deployed with or without an SCBA or integrated into a 3M™ Scott™ Fire & Safety Air-Pak Fifty or Air-Pak NxG2 SCBA. The rugged, simple to use system functions on the principle of 2.4GHz RF signal strength received and is an invaluable additional tool for search and rescue operations.

3M™ Scott™ Fire & Safety’s SEMS II is a remarkable accountability system that puts the incident commander at every firefighter’s side, displaying information vital to personal safety in volatile and dangerous situations, while providing a continuous link of communications to the command station. And with the integrated personnel locator, it provides the peace of mind that a downed or trapped firefighter can be quickly found.
