New Bern Fire-Rescue performs their own testing and maintenance of our Self Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA). We have a state-of-the art room dedicated to testing and maintaining our breathing apparatus. Testing includes annual demand breathing tests, and every six years the units are taken apart and a complete overhaul is performed. Currently, there are five certified technicians.
New Bern Fire-Rescue uses Survivair equipment. The company's staff of qualified technicians assists us with problems that might occur. The dynamic breathing unit we use is a Biosystem Posicheck 3, which helps our technicians to determine any problems the SCBA unit might have. We understand the importance of having SCBA our personnel can depend on.
