Cobb County Fire Chooses the MSA G1 SCBA

On November 5, 2019, Cobb County Fire & Emergency Services officially put their new MSA G1 SCBAs into service. Cobb County’s SCBA Selection Committee, led by Battalion Chief Josh Taylor, made the decision to switch to the G1 after an extensive SCBA evaluation process. This included both a technical review and field evaluation.

“Our firefighters put their lives on the line every day to keep the residents of Cobb County safe, and this new respiratory protective equipment will provide a greater level of safety on the job,” said Chief Johnson.  “This technology is a significant upgrade for our first responders, and I thank MSA for partnering with us to help keep our more than 700 men and women in the fire service safer.”

“We’re incredibly honored that the Cobb County Fire Department has entrusted MSA with the responsibility of protecting the men and women who keep the residents of Cobb County safe each day,” said Nish Vartanian, MSA President and CEO.
