G1 Voice Amp

Every MSA G1 SCBA is equipped with electronic voice amplification. Dual microphones integrated into the regulator eliminate background and inhalation noise, helping your commands to be heard. This unique feature automatically activates and shuts down with the unit.

Shoulder strap-mounted speaker module provides loud and clear communications from the regulator microphone while maintaining low profile to aid in reducing snag points.

MSA has introduced an industry first, SCBA to two-way radio voice communication system via Bluetooth technology.

By pairing your MSA G1 SCBA with your department radios* via Bluetooth, all keyed on-air communication is transmitted wirelessly from your SCBA through your radio to incident command.

G1 Ergonomics

The MSA G1 SCBA is the only SCBA on the market that offers harness customization to ensure improved comfort, balance and fit.

MSA has taken SCBA protection to a whole new level — With an SCBA that doesn’t require multiple battery sizes, There is no need to manage battery types, compartments and change-outs, resulting in lower cost of ownership.

G1 SCBA Cleaning Guide

The entire fire service industry recognizes that soiled or contaminated protective gear can expose firefighters to toxic substances, spread communicable disease, absorb heat, conduct electricity, and can be flammable. In short, clean PPE can help keep you safe.

NFPA 1851 recommends the user to evaluate PPE after each use to determine the appropriate cleaning level. This includes instructions for cleaning at the scene and an advanced cleaning at least once a year or whenever on-scene cleaning is not sufficient. Here are seven steps to assist in cleaning your SCBA.
