We advocate for firefighter safety through the use of air management best practices, technology and advanced fireground research.

Our Mission Stands on Four Pillars


We follow the development of air technologies and advocate for their integration into firefighting best practices. These technologies include portable breathing air, air monitoring, fireground tools, PPE, and more.
