The Assistance to Firefighters grant will allow Tampa Fire Rescue to purchase self-contained breathing apparatus for all its crews, officials said Monday. The air packs provide respiratory protection against smoke, chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear hazards. The ones currently in use are about 12 years old, officials said. The new ones will feature a visual display showing how much air remains available in the bottle and a personal alert safety system that will activate automatically if the firefighter becomes disabled.
