By choosing the Draeger PSS range, the Brigade has selected a system that will successfully meet its needs today whilst continuing to grow to meet its needs well into the future. Combining innovative comfort and performance, born from years of product research and development, the PSS system is the result of our work with different brigades in all kinds of applications. Bringing real-time monitoring to the fore, it has also helped to revolutionize communications as well as firefighter safety."
