At FDIC International 2018, one of the most popular manufacturers of firefighter self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) unveiled its new partnership and logo, its latest SCBA, and a $100,000 donation to two major firefighter charities as part of a comprehensive cancer prevention and awareness initiative.
Making its FDIC debut, 3M Scott Fire & Safety’s Air-Pak™ X3 Pro SCBA (below) is built on a proven foundation of redundant safety features to ensure the security and comfort of today’s firefighter. The new product maintains the proven design and value proposition of the Air-Pak X3, with an emphasis on enhancements to cleanability, comfort, and connectivity.
At their booth on the Indianapolis Convention Center floor, 3M Scott Fire & Safety’s Global Business Unit Leader Jeff Emery updates us with the latest innovations and news coming from the 3M Scott Fire & Safety brand:
In addtion to their impressive booth, which also featured the Scott Sight Challenge, where participants raced through two tunnels to locate heat sources through thermal imaging, 3M Scott Fire & Safety also hosted the “Rock the Roof” event at the Indiana Ballroom, offering attendees food, drinks, and live music in a festive setting, culminating in Business Unit Manager John Denning presenting two $25,000 checks, one each to the Firefighter Cancer Support Network and the First Responder Center for Excellence.
The checks are part of $100,000 in charitable donations the company will make to the firefighter community over the next two years as part of a comprehensive cancer prevention and awareness initiative. The donation will enable other organizations to join the fight in minimizing carcinogen cancer hazards facing firefighters.
