Sperian Respiratory Wins Big SCBA Contract in S. California

Sperian Respiratory Protection announced today that it and its distributor, L.N. Curtis & Sons, have been awarded the SCBA contract for the Southern California Area Personal Protective Equipment Consortium (SCAPPEC). Sperian will provide SCBAs, SCBA communication components, CBRN PAPRs, and related SCBA items in the three-year contract, which is among the largest municipal fire service SCBA orders ever placed in the United States, according to the manufacturer.

The Warrior SCBA received its certification to NFPA 1981 and 1982, 2007 Editions, less than four months ago. To fulfill the SCAPPEC contract, about 4,200 Warrior SCBAs and related items will be shipped to fire departments in the greater Los Angeles County area during the next 10 months. Field evaluation and performance tests preceded the decision to award the contract.

"The cooperation among the fire departments that comprise SCAPPEC makes a statement to the nation about the importance of SCBA interoperability," said Steve Weinstein, senior SCBA product manager for Sperian Respiratory Protection. "These participating departments now have the opportunity to be fully compatible with each other in mutual aid and rapid intervention scenarios."

"This is a tremendous approval by the firefighting community of the integration, reliability, comfort, and safety features of the Warrior," said Jeff Shipley, Warrior product manager for the company. "This was a difficult, complicated, and highly sought-after contract with nationwide visibility. We are very pleased with our Warrior SCBA and honored that SCAPPEC chose it as the product that meets their needs."
