Boots with Air Filter / Fire fighting boots

Boots with Air Filter

When fire happens indoor, the smoke influences the rescuing work more than the fire itself. Since the density of the poisonous smoke is less than the air, firefighters generally bend or creep into the house to do rescuing. That best reduces the volume of poisonous smoke being breathed in. The gas mask is usually used in heavy smoke, which would block most of the field of view when using filter cartridge. It impacts movement of head too. Besides, the oxygen bomb on the rescuer’s back brings much inconvenience to his work. The Boots with Air Filter puts the smoke filtering box on the boots, which is low enough.
