Dräger Shortlisted for Fire Safety Innovation of the Year

Dräger, an international leader in the fields of medical and safety technology, has been shortlisted for the FSM Fire Safety Innovation of the Year award, in recognition of the company’s commitment to enhancing firefighter safety through technological development and improvement.

The Fire Safety Innovation of the Year Award is open to any fire safety manufacturer or service provider and recognises the products or solutions that have been developed for either active or passive fire protection.

The UCF FireCore, Dräger’s hands-free thermal imaging camera, is the product behind the nomination, a device which projects live action imagery into the Dräger FPS 7000 full face mask. Resistant to water and dust, with lithium-ion batteries guaranteeing safety over long durations, the UCF FireCore provides continuous vision in the low-visibility, high-risk and unfamiliar environments that emergencies often present.

With hands-free capabilities, helmet-mounted thermal imaging cameras provide the users with a complete overview of the current situation and reduce physical strain on the neck because the camera angle can be easily adjusted to provide an optimal view. Similarly, the user’s range of vision can be extended and easily detached to see into difficult-to-reach areas, through structural openings and around corners to assess potential risks and reduce the risk of future hazard.

Dräger’s UCF® FireCore, can be coupled with the FPS in mask display (IMD) within a few seconds, accelerating the handover of equipment to reduce vital time lost in transition by simply holding the two components together. In doing so, the camera equipment is transferred effortlessly, helping emergency personnel to pass on life-saving technologies from one task force to the other – even at the scene of emergency.

Liz Milward, Marketing Manager at Draeger Safety UK, says the company is proud to be acknowledged for its efforts to further fire fighters’ health and safety:

“With flames, smoke and darkness impairing vision in high-risk environments, improving situational awareness and enhancing firefighter orientation is critical if we are to protect the lives of firefighters in the most dangerous environments.

“We are delighted to be shortlisted for the FSM Fire Safety Innovation of the Year award, and this is a testament to the hard work Dräger do to enhance safety in action, and support emergency operations with greater efficiency and reduced risk.”
