AFD's new respiratory protection tool

Anchorage Fire Department has transitioned to a new type of respiratory protection worn by our emergency responders to reduce the spread of the virus which causes COVID-19. The Positive Air Purifying Respirator (PAPR) provides a flow of filtered air to the wearer while protecting their face without reducing vision.

You can expect to see our Firefighters wearing PAPRs on emergency medical responses.

Not only due the PAPRs provide a high level of respiratory protection they are more sustainable than the disposable N95 masks or 1/2 face respirators which use disposable cartridges.
