  | CFA News & Media Views: 10960

The Respiratory Protection Replacement Project (RPRP) was established to replace the respiratory protection equipment used by CFA, MFB, Corrections Victoria and Ambulance Victoria.

New MSA breathing apparatus

(L-R) MSA G1 Classic (non-electronic) and MSA G1 (electronic)

This State Government-funded project will improve first responder safety and enable interoperability between agencies.

The RPRP is led by CFA with support from MFB. There was an extensive process to select and evaluate a new generation CABA set, requiring collaboration between many teams, and endorsement from the United Firefighters Union and Volunteer Fire Brigades Victoria.

CFA’s current 2,479 Sabre Centurion and Drager CABA equipment will be replaced by new breathing apparatus sets from MSA. Please view the latest breathing apparatus updates on the CFA Intranet and Brigades Online.
