Dane Taylor Technologies Pty Ltd
Dane Taylor Technologies designed and manufactures the Fair Air fire mask - the first highly fire resistant, reusable respirator designed specifically for bushfire (wildfire) fighting.
As the Fair Air filters have a life of at least ten washes then this missing element of PPE is less expensive than the commonly supplied P2 dust masks which provide no fire protection.

Serious injury avoided during Tasmanian fires: Last January two Tasmanian RFS volunteers were caught in a burnover- The one with a P2 disposable mask was hospitalised with smoke inhalation; the other who was wearing his Fair Air mask had no problem whatsoever. Their brigade has now won a grant to buy Fair Air masks for all members.
Another Tasmanian Rural Fire Brigade has purchased Fair Air fire masks after an incident where a P2 disposable dust mask caught fire on a volunteer's face.
