Fire kit and BA scale new heights
23 January 2013
Adding a new dimension to a Mt Kilimanjaro climb, Station Commander Martin Lown of Hereford & Worcester Fire and Rescue Service completed the 5895m (AMSL) task in seven days whilst wearing fire kit and breathing appara
Lown commented: "Having recently gone live with the new Draeger PSS 7000 set within the Service as part of the West Midlands regional procurement, I decided to try and complete the climb whilst wearing fire kit and BA. Draeger BA is lightweight and comfortable to wear so it did not hinder me in any way despite the arduous conditions."
