As soon as you recognize that your breathable air is compromised, immediately initiate a MAYDAY (request for help) by any means possible. Begin looking for potential sources of breathable air. Consider the trapped air that might be remaining within your turnout coat. Remove the product from its stored location prior to the depletion of your air supply. Once the SCBA has been depleted, remove the mask mounted regulator and replace it with the MAYDAY-Air (each SCBA model may involve specific directions, click for full instructions.) The MAYDAY-Air must be inserted fully into the SCBA face piece and then rotated a 1/4 turn to ensure a proper seal. Direct the breathing hose towards the selected air source and begin breathing.
Technical Rescue Products, Inc., makers of the MAYDAY Backup Air Solution fully acknowledge that these products are not a "Save All". These products were designed to be used as a "last-ditch-effort" at saving the life of the firefighter when no other option exists. They should never be used as a substitute for a properly functioning SCBA and this product does not guarantee survival. Failing to familiarize in advance with how this product attaches to the face piece could result in death or serious injury. This product does not ensure a fresh air supply will be established. This product does not keep you from inhaling smoke or other fire gases. The breathing tube will kink - store in a manner that avoids kinking.
