New fit test machine purchased for county agencies

The LCFCA is excited to announce a new fit test machine has been purchased for use by all Lancaster County fire agencies that use SCBA face-pieces. The machine is a QuantiFIT2 by OHD Global. The unit uses a multi-step process to verify the firefighter's issued face-piece fits their unique facial features. The machine measures the fit of a face-piece to NFPA, OSHA, and NIOSH standards.

This fit test equipment was purchased by the LCFCA. It was then donated to the Lancaster County Public Safety Training Center Foundation.

Agencies wishing to fit test their members should contact Ken Weber at LCPSTC to schedule a training session for your members to learn how to use the machine. Three agencies have already used the unit with positive reviews.

The Lancaster County Fire Chief's Association is thrilled to have been able to provide this incredibly important piece of equipment for the benefit of the county's fire service.
