Mike Taylor of Dane Taylor Technologies designed and manufactures the Fair Air fire mask - the first highly fire resistant, reusable respirator designed specifically for bushfire (wildfire) fighting.
The unique Fair Air filters incorporate highly advanced technologies and have a life of at least ten washes. This missing element of bushfire PPE is far less expensive per use than the commonly supplied P2 dust masks which provide no fire protection and don't seal if you have any facial hair.

To cope with increased demand in Canada, we have added a new reseller:
Iverson Forest Management Inc in British Columbia.
Saskatchewan firefighters that have been using the mask for over two years have had their proposal that FPInnovations
formally evaluate it approved. This will lead to adoption by all forestry companies in Canada.
With the 'flu season happening in the Southern Hemisphere many are looking for additional protection on top of vaccines which are only about 50% effective.
As the Fair Air filters take out over 99.9% of particles of 0.3 micron and 'flu are larger than this at 0.43 micron this mask is clearly a great way to protect against 'flu.
