Air-Line Supplied Air Respirators

AEL Title: Respirator, Supplied Air

AEL Number: 01AR-01-SAR

SAVER Project: Air-Line Supplied Air Respirators

Air-line supplied air respirators (SARs) provide clean breathing air from an uncontaminated source, and are used by responders  when air-purifying respirators (APRs) cannot provide adequate protection for a sufficient duration of time. Unlike, self-contained breathing apparatuses (SCBAs), air-line SARs may limit the user's mobility, but their air supply is not limited like that of the SCBA.

Find this project in the FEMA Authorized Equipment List and InterAgency Board Interactive Standardized Equipment List.
