Dräger fire escape hood

PARAT 5550

  • client:

    Project developed during my internship at Drägerwerk AG & Co
  • about:

    The Dräger PARAT® 5550 is a fire escape hood packaged in a flame retardant pouch. It was specifically designed for fire rescue teams for use in victim rescue. The fire escape hood can be carried along (e.g. on the breathing apparatus) without restricting the rescuer's freedom of movement. The fast deployment of the Dräger PARAT 5550 contributes to the safety of the person being rescued. The wearer opens the holster, removes the foil pouch containing the escape hood, opens it along the perforation — with ease, even when wearing gloves — and helps the person being rescued to don it.
