Why do masks never seem to fit right?!
Hello Smart Firefighting Community!
Welcome to another episode of covering real world innovations via interviews with fire service and technology industry experts that empower YOU to develop your very own Smart Firefighting strategy!
In this episode:
- What is 3D Fit?
- The challenges of masks fitting properly on public health & safety workers
- How technology can improve the fit of masks
Find out from Mike Gugino, inventor of 3D FIT!
Mike has worked in the respiratory protection fit testing process for many years and has oversaw thousands of annual fit tests. Mike knows the frustrations around fit testing all too well and while he was working in this role, he decided that there had to be a better way. So he created the app 3D FIT (still in development!) as an alternative respiratory protection fit test that only utilizes a smart device. Thanks to his innovation, Mike will help save first resopnder and medical workers time while making them safer with better fitting masks!
