Spare Air Escape

The noxious fumes created by the burning of many household materials can quickly transform trapped, breathable air into a toxic cloud choking your lungs and burning your eyes long before the heat from a fire is a real danger.

In recent years, fire safety experts from the NFPA have published national statistics regarding deaths and injury resulting from fire. The data clearly indicates that smoke inhalation is the leading cause of death and injury. Online medical advice sites report 50%-80% of all deaths and injury from fire are primarily caused by smoke or a combination of smoke and fire. In 2011, the NFPA reported that from 2004 to 2008, 41% of all fire INJURIES reported were from smoke inhalation alone. Often these injuries create breathing problems long after the fire is out.

Submersible Systems offers an affordable package to help you save your own life in a fire-smoke emergency - The Spare Air Escape! Simply insert the mouthpiece and breathe life saving air. Then place the mask over your eyes and calmly exit the danger area. The panic free moments can mean the difference between life and death for you, and can give you valuable time to find loved-ones and pets to help them escape.

"I just wanted you to know that your fantastic system that keeps me safe when diving, saved a little girls life last night. I was able to walk through thick smoke into our neighbors burning house with my mask and Spare Air and found the child trapped inside.

Thanks Spare Air! It’s the best life saver ever! I'll buy one for all my family members!

Proudly made in the US indeed!"
