I was just wondering if there were any DoD installations using a SCOTT SCBA?

Any Army or Airforce installations using them? It seems most NAS are using the SCOTT platform but I wasn't sure if it has spread to the other agencies yet.

nearly all Air Force instillation have transitioned to MSA. I believe that it was mandated Air Force wide to replace interspiro.

I work for the ARMY at Fort Bliss and we are currentlu using the SCOTT SCBA. I am also in the AF Reserves and all AF Fire Protection is using MSA, although i have been to some air guard bases that used to use the intra spiro and scotts. But as you can imagine, supporting two scba systems can get quite expensive.

Stay Safe,
Omar

Well I'm not sure that there is any mandate or instruction that says an AF installation can only use an MSA. From my understandaing as long as the SCBA is NFPA compliant they can use whatever pack they would like. Now they do have to keep MSA's for mobility purposes and the military need to be trained and certified on them for deployments. Can anyone else shed some light on an AF instruction that says MSA must be used at all AF installations?

What the AF did was replace all Interspiro with the MSA Firehawk system, specifically designed for the AF. They of course are used for day to day operations and for mobility purposes. This was a central buy by the AF for all AF installations, Guard and Reserve forces. Saves a lot of money in the long run. MSA supports the system with parts etc thru a GSA contract. Good airpacks, not any lighter than the rest of the new ones.
