Potomac Emergency Escape Mask
The POTOMAC® Emergency Escape Mask was designed to provide certified protection for biological and chemical terror threats – including anthrax, cyanide, sarin, and smallpox – by helsatech® of Germany, a leading manufacturer of nuclear, biological and chemical defense products for military and civilian use. There is no comparable product on the market today.
The 1995 chemical terror attacks in Tokyo – where combined cyanide and sarin agents were used – provided the impetus behind the intensive research and development of the unique, full-face, lightweight Potomac Emergency Escape Mask, providing emergency respiratory and eye protection.
The POTOMAC Emergency Escape Mask protects from toxic and lethal effects of biological/chemical terror meets or exceeds international performance standards.
