  • SCBA mask fog?

    Anyone have any tips to keep the mask from fogging up?

    A properly fitted nose cup helps a lot.

      Just crack the bypass valve.

        SCUBA No-Fog works very well, too.

        I use it on the suit face-piece when I am in a level-A.

          Hold your breath.
          Logic and proportion have fallen sloppy dead.

            That's probably the best solution!

              Whenever I scuba dive I just spit in my mask. Never tried it with scba. Just crack the bypass

                Try baby shampoo.

                  I use a drop of mild soap in mine and buff it out with a soft cloth. It works very well at keeping the fog away

                        Wipe some shaving cream on the inside of the mask. Then buff until its clear. Works on apparatus windshields too.

                          Goes back to another thread where the poster asked if you should mask up while on the apparatus.

                          My answer, no.
                          I am now a past chief and the views, opinions, and comments are mine and mine alone. I do not speak for any department or in any official capacity. Although, they would be smart to listen to me.

                            Why not don your mask in the apparatus?

                            You'll have more time to wrap up your head with flash hood, flap up the collar of your tunic and buckle the chin strap of helmet. All to be done to protect you from possible fire or heat burn.

                            With today's design of detachable breathing valve, you can get higher protection and your action is quicker. You can get into the fire scene within 20 seconds under the best protection. Why not?
