SCBA for the Fire Service

FireHawk M7 Air Mask

1. TAKING THE HEAT
Although MSA PASS alarms have performed in extreme temperatures for more than a decade, a top priority was to design an alarm that could really take the heat! The new M7 alarm (patent pending) was developed in cooperation with prominent university acoustic experts, resulting in an emitter that exceeds 95 decibels with solid performance at the NFPA 500F test! Once again, giving you that lifesaving edge in the face of danger.

2. VIRTUALLY "BULLET-PROOF" ELECTRONICS
Like an armor shield, the M7 HUD, Power Module, and Control Module are encased in a proprietary high-temperature impact-grade polymer, providing the highest possible protection against impact and water ingress. - Electronics enclosures are permanently sonically welded to a hermetic standard and use a high-pressure O-ring to ensure a consistent water-tight seal. The new M7 electronics are virtually "bullet-proof" against fire-ground hazards.

3. STRAIGHT-TALK COMMUNICATIONS
We've got you covered with communications, starting with a high-performance mechanical speech diaphragm, performing so well that it may likely serve as a stand-alone solution to meet the latest NFPA communications requirements! Backing the mechanical diaphragm is an electronic amplifier with an internal facepiece microphone for ultimate clarity, a digital signal processor to eliminate feedback even when shouting, three volume levels, and an auto-off feature after 20 minutes of no-use to save batteries. The new Air Mask speaks loud and clear when it comes to communications.

4. FIREGROUND MANAGEMENT
Firefighter accountability systems have never before been as practical, complete, and user-friendly as the MSA M7 Accountability System. It's based on the ICM® TxR Unit introduced in mid-2006, which has thousands of systems deployed in virtually every type of fire department, and they're performing phenomenally! It displays a full array of visual and audible information for up to 100 firefighters within a one-mile­line-of-site - exactly what incident commanders wanted. Record keeping is also made easy by downloading reports. This crown jewel is available only from MSA!
5. EXTENDED PROTECTION
The new FireHawk M7 Air Mask is not your typical SCBA. Firefighters need to be prepared for the unexpected, and emergency egress from a 2nd-floor or higher can be impossible without the right safety equipment. That's why the new M7 Air Mask offers an NFPA- compliant integrated rappelling system, called the Rescue Belt, providing firefighters with one more lifesaving option in the face of danger.
"Above and beyond" protection is also provided with the CBRN FireHawk MMR. The CBRN FireHawk includes a positive-protection Tetraplex™ shield, to prevent contact between chemical warfare agents and the most vulnerable component of regulators, their thin elastomeric diaphragm. Other "air-wash" approaches may pass in laboratory conditions. The shield provides positive protection against all potential conditions.
External hazards are bad enough without having concerns of spreading illness among firefighters through shared-use SCBA. The Ultra Elite® facepiece protects you against user cross-contamination with MSA's inhalation check-valve: a "must have" in modern safety equipment.

6. LIGHTWEIGHT AND EASY TO USE
Firefighters already have enough weight to carry and gear to maintain, so MSA engineers set out to lighten the load of components, reduce parts counts, simplify maintenance, maximize user comfort, and modularize the design. The FireHawk M7 Air Mask has a lightweight polymer backplate, with quick-release harness straps, an error-proof cam-lock cylinder attachment, fast change-out electronic components, a large swiveling lumbar pad, and regulators that will fit in the palm of your hand (less than 30 parts for the MMR and 14 for the 1 st stage). Our time-tested Ultra Elite facepiece has unbeatable comfort, visibility, communications, cross-contamination protection, fit, and seal.

7. PLATFORM FOR THE FUTURE
The FireHawk M7 Air Mask is designed to accept future technology upgrades. Included in every M7 electronics ensemble is a 2.4GHz personal wireless network, a network that transmits and receives encrypted information over a short-range on a firefighter's body. This new wireless feature provides the capability to add on future technology that can provide additional information back to incident command through the FireHawk M7 Accountability System. Software can also be upgraded wirelessly in the field, through
the M7 wireless network. You never have to worry about radio interference either - we have you covered with a thoroughly-tested RFI shield design that protects against all fireground radio signals. The new FireHawk M7 Air Mask provides you with the best technology today and positions you for well into the future.

AirHawk II Industrial Air Mask
AirHawk II Industrial Air Mask

Facepiece Assemblies for FireHawk M7 Air Mask

Ultra Elite® Facepiece:
The MSA Ultra Elite Facepiece offers an effective combination of comfort and performance. Designed to provide exceptional peripheral and downward vision, the Ultra Elite Facepiece features a super-soft facepiece texture for a smooth and comfortable fit. It also resists chemical attack and temperature extremes, and withstands rugged day-to-day use without tearing and ripping.
The design of the Ultra Elite Facepiece is based on extensive anthropometric studies of the face-length, temple-width and chin-width data from more than 8.000 individuals. The result is a face piece that provides improved seals against a wide range of facial contours. To provide a secure, comfortable fit, the facepiece utilizes five adjustable straps with stainless steel. field-replaceable buckles that resist chemical attack. The straps also feature slightly larger adjustmenttabs that are easier to manipulate, even with gloves on.
For slip-on convenience, the Ultra Elite Facepiece can be equipped with the SpeeD-ON® Facepiece Harness. Made of flame- and heat-resistant Kevlar Fabric, the harness features a hair-net type, five-point suspension that can be easily and securely adjusted at each point.
Lenses on MSA full facepieces are molded from polycarbonate, and a special super hardcoating provides a tough, durable facepiece lens to resist scratching.
Firehawk® MMR:
The Firehawk MMR, MSA's mask-mounted regulator assembly, is available with two different attachment systems, the Firehawk MMR truly redefines ease-of-use and ease-of-maintenance, combined with outstanding performance.
The Firehawk second-stage regulator features a unique Slide-To­Connect (STC) attachment system that allows firefighters to hang the regulator on the facepiece in the "ready position," then simply push it into the facepiece when SCBA air is needed. Doffing of the regulator, while wearing gloves, is also easy with two large release buttons that automatically turn-off the flow of air as the regulator is doffed. A dual­swivel feature on the pressure hose provides maximum freedom-of-head movement and the silicone hose material ensures hose flexibility even at very cold temperatures.
In addition to the STC system, MSA also offers a second connection option for the Firehawk Regulator, the Push-to-Connect (PTC). The PTC's Adapter self-centers the Firehawk regulator and the loud dual sound of the regulator engaging onto the facepiece provides you with confidence that the Firehawk PTC is securely attached to your facepiece-an action that takes just seconds, when seconds count!
Maintenance is also a breeze, considering the Firehawk design requires no tools, adhesives, or sealants, and has approximately 70% fewer parts as compared to other regulators on the market. Additionally, there are no internal adjustments required. Any adjustments to the regulator may be accomplished at a single adjustment point through the outlet port of the regulator.
Ease of use and maintenance, combined with outstanding performance, makes the Firehawk MMR clearly the product of choice.
Heads-Up Display (HUD):
When you open your Air Mask's cylinder valve, the HUD automatically activates, displaying the cylinder pressure reading in 25% increments.
ClearCommand Communications System:
MSA's ClearCommand Communications System is designed specifically to meet the modern communications needs of firefighters. It features an internally mounted microphone coupled with a large-diameter (50mm) amplifier speaker for optimal clarity and volume. Using a proprietary circuit design, the system delivers more than twice the volume of a facepiece alone. Mounted in an "out-of-the-way" position, the ClearCommand System doesn't block vision or mechanical communication. The Ultra Elite's mechanical voicemitter is still fully functional, even with the system installed.

FireHawk M7 Responder Air Mask
FireHawk M7 Responder Air Mask

MSA's new FireHawk M7 Responder Air Mask is uniquely versatile protection that can quickly be transformed into a CBRN air-purifying respirator (APR) or a CBRN powered air-purifying respirator (PAPR). You can change respirator modes as your job changes direction from first response and rescue to scene management and remediation activities.
Firefighters typically are the first to respond to any incident whether it is a residential fire, an accident, or any unknown threat. MSA's FireHawk M7 Responder Air Mask provides the maximum level of protection for CBRN environments. However, that amount of protection is not always needed, especially outside the immediate fire scene. Once the hazard has been assessed, air-purifying respirators (APR) may make the most sense for low concentrations of certain contaminants.
The M7 Responder facepiece is NIOSH approved for the SCBA, PAPR and APR configurations, in accordance with the MSA users instructions. This practical emergency respiratory protection system meets/ exceeds the latest requirements of NFPA and NIOSH standards (see ATO ordering information for details). It's the first and only of its kind, and an emergency responder's dream come true.

Based on the seven life-safety design components built on the FireHawk M7 Air Mask to ensure you of the highest-quality SCBA currently available, giving you that lifesaving edge in the face of danger. This new air mask offers more options than any other product in the industry, combined with the unique CBRN APR and PAPR options.
The FireHawk M7 Responder APR
To convert from SCBA to APR, the canister and breathing tube must be attached to the facepiece. When the SCBA cylinder valve is closed, facepiece valves convert to air-purifying mode through the APR canister. Although the air mask carrier and harness and cylinder may be removed from the user, the MMR regulator must always be connected to the inlet adapter to seal the facepiece inlet port.

The FireHawk M7 Responder PAPR
The CBRN Responder PAPR (Powered Air-Purifying Respirator) system is ideal when you need non-IDLH respiratory protection for an extended period of time (up to 8 hours). This PAPR provides an OSHA-assigned protection factor 20 times greater than APR, due to positive pressure in the mask. Essentially, it combines an industry-leading motor-blower to the Ultra Elite M7 Responder Facepiece, and CBRN canisters for up to 8 hours of air-purifying respiratory protection. Its constant filtered airflow (of at least 115 lpm) improves comfort with a cooling effect, greatly reducing pulmonary stress, and preserving strength and mental acuity. The airflow also prevents fogging in the facepiece, reduces claustrophobia,and allows for extended use in hot and stressful environments.

Accountability System
Accountability System

Accountability is key to every firefighter's safety on a fire scene. MSA's new optional Accountability System revolutionizes fireground safety by combining the latest computer software with a high-performance radio module and the field-proven technology of MSA's ICM Tx Integrated PASS.
A new way to monitor vital information

  • Each MSA base station can monitor up to 50 firefighters, and you can use multiple base stations on a single computer.
  • The FireHawk M7 Air Mask with telemetry transmits to incident command the firefighter's name, team assignment, cylinder pressure, service­time remaining, PASS alarms (motion or manual), thermal alarms, battery status, radio connectivity, and evacuation acknowledgement.

A fireground management system

  • Personalized 10 tags for each firefighter tell incident command exactly who is on scene.
  • An integrated PAR (personnel accountability report) timer helps manage radio calls to each team.
  • Incident command can manually add firefighters who are not wearing an SCBA or mutual aid firefighters, so all personnel can be accounted for.

Intuitive and easy to use

  • Assign firefighters to teams by clicking on a fire­fighter's icon and dragging it to another team.
  • A volume of critical information is available at a glance of the screen, due to the large number of firefighters that can be displayed and the pictorial format of the information.
  • Receive both audible and visual indications of critical events such as PASS alarms or low­pressure alarms.
A two-way evacuation feature
  • Incident command is assured that firefighters receive all evacuation messages. When incident command transmits the alarm through the FireHawk M7 Air Mask, they'll know the firefighter received it, because the unit automatically sends a confirmation message to the base station.
  • By simply pressing a button on his/her own control module, a firefighter can send a manual confirmation to acknowledge that they have received and understand the critically important evacuation message.
  • Firefighters will hear the evacuation alarm on their own personal PASS device. Also, visual indications in the HUD and an icon on the control module will alert the firefighter that it is time to evacuate.
  • An individual firefighter, a team of firefighters, or all firefighters can be evacuated with the click of a button.
  • Although certain concrete and steel commercial structures can challenge any radio signal, MSA's Accountability System coverage with radio technology provides highly reliable performance for a 1-mile line-of-sight range.
  • Due to the spread-spectrum design, it does not interfere with other high-band radio frequency equipment.
  • For additional safety, both base station and firefighter modules have an icon message to inform users if a firefighter falls out of radio signal range, so that alternate accountability measures, such as voice radio contact with teammates, can be taken.

MSA's new M7 Accountability System revolutionizes fireground safety by combining the latest computer software with a high-performance radio module and the field-proven technology of MSA's ICM TxR Integrated PASS.

Quick-Fill System
Quick Fill System

The patented Quick-Fill System lets MSA Air Mask users refill and transfill air cylinders while the SCBA is worn, without re­moving the air cylinder-even in IDLH atmospheres. Use this MSA-exclusive option to:

  • Fill an SCBA cylinder from a mobile compressor or cascade system in less than a minute.
  • Transfill between two cylinders, providing an Emergency Breathing System.
  • Extend the air supply over longer durations, using a remote compressed-air source.

Because performance is not affected, MSA Air Masks retain NIOSH certification during use of the Quick-Fill System. Air Masks compliant to recent NFPA standard have the Quick-Fill URC fitting located at the Audi-Larm warning device. A Quick-Fill hose with a quick-disconnect connects the air source to the adapter for air transfer.

Helmet Microphone Assembly
Clear Command HCS  Helmet Microphones

The Helmet Communication System from MSA is a state-of-the-art radio interface device which significantly improves the user's ability to receive and send messages even in loud ambient-noise environments. It goes wherever you go. The system consists of a helmet-mounted microphone and ear speaker assembly that weighs 5.3 ounces and easily snaps onto the user's fire helmet or industrial-style helmet's ratchet suspension. The helmet mic/ear speaker assembly connects to a lapel microphone or optional stand-alone PD (push-to-talk) unit. The lapel microphone and PD are permanently fitted with a connector for attachment to the specific radio of choice. The Helmet Communication System also offers a plug-in truck communication adapter that can be used by firefighters, along with their helmet microphone assembly, on the way to a fire scene or other incident. Once the firefighter arrives at the scene, the truck system cable is unplugged from the helmet microphone, and the helmet microphone cable end is connected to the user's lapel mic or PD. The user of the Helmet Communication System has uninterrupted communication from the time the alarm sounds until the incident is over.

  • Incorporates a "noise-eliminating" bone­conduction voice transmitter that virtually eliminates high ambient noise levels.
  • Custom user-fitted ear speaker brings all incoming communication directly to the user's ear. No need to lift your lapel mic up to your ear to hear transmission.
  • Easily snaps onto the ratchet suspension of fire helmets or industrial-style helmets. The unit can be easily transferred to other users, and no tools are required for removal.
  • Can be used over the top of facepiece head harnesses, hoods and liners without losing the quality of the transmission.
  • The bone-conduction microphone is made of soft silicone material, which makes it comfortable to wear, with no pressure points.
  • The helmet microphone assembly can be reversed on the helmet suspension to position the ear speaker on either ear.
  • The helmet mic system, when used with the lapel mic or PH is powered by the battery from the radio. No need to replace or re-charge dry cells.
  • Special connectors suitable for most common radios are available for the lapel microphone and PD, which allows users to adapt the system to their existing radios.
  • The helmet mic is NFPA-certified which allows its use while fighting fires.
  • Intrinsic safety approvals allow the use of the Helmet Communication System in hazardous environments.
  • The stand-alone PD unit is designed for use under hazardous material suits. The large button makes it easy for the user to depress and communicate.
  • The helmet mic incorporates a cable keeper which allows for storage of the cable when it's not connected to the lapel mic or PTT

Clear Command Communications System for Ultra Elite Facepieces
Clear Command for Ultra Elite Facepieces

ClearCommand® Communications System for Ultra Elite® Facepieces
MSA's ClearCommand Communications System is designed specifically to meet the modern communications needs of firefighters.
Because it's available in two versions, amplifier and amplifier with radio interface, firefighting teams can be properly fitted for the job at hand. Also, the systems are designed for "shared­use" of the amplifier with a unique "bus-bar" arrangement, so individual issue is not required.
The ClearCommand systems feature an internally mounted microphone coupled with a large-diameter (50mm) amplifier speaker for optimal clarity and volume. Using a proprietary circuit design, the system delivers more than twice the volume of a facepiece alone. Mounted in an "out-of-the-way" position, the ClearCommand System doesn't block vision or mechanical communication. The Ultra Elite's mechanical voicemitter is still fully functional, even with the system installed.
The radio interface version features the same amplifier as the amp-only version, combined with an ear-speaker for incoming radio messages and a lapel mic assembly for interface with over 100 radios. The lapel mic can be used as a component of the ClearCommand system or as a stand-alone hand mic.
Both the amplifier and radio interface models are intrinsically safe, and meet the applicable requirements of NIOSH and NFPA 1981, 2002 edition.

APR Adapters for FireHawk Air Masks

APR Adapter
MSA's APR adapter provides firefighters with the versatility they need to perform all tasks at the fire ground with one common facepiece. From fire-fighting to overhaul to homeland security, firefighters can switch from a positive-pressure facepiece to a negative-pressure air-purifying respirator simply by engaging the APR Adapter. The APR Adapter uses MSA's comprehensive family line of air-purifying cartridges; select from the Advantage cartridges or our CBA/RCA canisters to protect against a multitude of airborne contaminants. The APR Adapter is designed for use in non-IDLH environments and is NIOSH-approved.

Spectacle Kits

Spectacle Kit for Full-Facepiece Respirators
For use by workers who must wear corrective lenses, the Spectacle Kit can be easily inserted into the facepiece. The kit includes a wire support, rubber guide, and pair of metal-frame spectacles. There are two kits for the Ultra Elite facepiece; one uses a side wire support to hold the lenses in the facepiece, while the other uses a center support to position the unit. Desired adjustment is obtained by moving the spectacles in and out ofthe rubber guide and up and down the wire support. One size of spectacle frame is used (S-7 shape, 48-mm lens size) with Universal Bridge Corrective Lenses that can be obtained from local sources. The Spectacle Kit can be used with a nosecup.

Nosecups (not shown)
Molded from a soft rubber compound that is resistant to facial oils, the optional nosecup helps reduce the possibility of lens fogging. The nosecup is particularly effective under conditions of high humidity and/or low temperatures by inhibiting contact of moist exhaled air with the facepiece lens. A nosecup can be easily affixed to the facepiece without tools. Any size nosecup may be installed in any size Ultra Elite Facepiece for a customized, more comfortable fit.
