After leaving a fire, personnel, clothing and equipment are contaminated with cancer causing particulate soot and some items will continue to off -gas VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) that can be inhaled for up to 45 minutes. In addition, medical responses and close quarters in apparatus, increase the chance for exposure to a range of bacterial and viral threats.
Unlike competitive products that address only one or two threats, CrewProtect attacks all three significant problems for firefighters including Particulates, VOCs, and Aerosols carrying bacteria and viruses (including SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19). CrewProtect is a comprehensive and simple solution to help protect first responders from the multiple harmful and carcinogenic airborne contaminants that other filtration systems miss.
CrewProtect is a unique, self-contained and comprehensive air filtration system for enclosed apparatus cabs that protects first responders from multiple threats they face each day. CrewProtect can be easily installed into new or existing apparatus by OEM’s, apparatus dealers, or apparatus service shops
is a plug-and-play solution for new or in-service trucks that easily mounts to the roof, wall, or doghouse and connects to standard truck power, drawing only 2 amps
TFT has partnered with our sister company, Purafil – one of the largest air filtration companies in the world – to integrate proven and patented§ filtration technology into CrewProtect. Similar filtration systems are used globally today in hospitals, industrial sites, schools, telecom, energy sites, agriculture, and food production.
CrewProtect is protecting whenever the apparatus is in use. It is filtering the air in the average cab every 3.5 minutes, which exceeds the air exchange rate of “clean rooms” and operating rooms in hospitals! As it purifies the air, it is removing two of the greatest contributors to firefighter cancer: particulates and VOCs. In addition, it removes aerosols carrying viruses and bacteria
CrewProtect includes smart filtration technology to visually alert you when the filter needs to be replaced. The filter is designed to neutralize harmful chemical contaminants, making it safe to simply discard as normal trash. The long life replacement filter is easily installed and ready to protect without any activation process.
Plug and play installation connects to standard truck power. The system only draws 2 amps and includes mounting brackets for installation in the roof, wall or doghouse.
At 12” (305 mm), CrewProtect can be installed horizontally or vertically in virtually any interior cab location using the provided mounting brackets. The system connects directly to 12 volt systems and automatically runs when the truck is operating. No need to turn on/off or adjust the flow rate. It operates at 100 CFMs and only 60.2 decibels, well below the NFPA maximum of 90 decibels.
CrewProtect is encased in steel that is powder coated inside and out and is specifically designed to withstand the apparatus cab traffic by being compact, rugged, and includes a three-year limited warranty. The filter system’s patented technology is the ONLY fire apparatus and ambulance product that tackles particulates, microbes, and VOCs.
†Filter protected by an EPA-registered antimicrobial additive.
