SALT LAKE CITY, Dec. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- American Preppers Network, an online network to promote self-reliance, emergency preparedness and survival skills, today announced an agreement with ILC Dover to market its SCape® CO/CBRN30 Escape Mask to the public.
ILC Dover has produced over 3 million M40 "gas masks" for the U.S. military and more than 350,000 escape masks for federal employees and dignitaries. Now, the same level of protection used by government officials worldwide is available for the civilian population - to protect themselves against terrorist attacks, toxic or chemical spills and smoke inhalation.

"The SCape CO is something we want to put our name behind. We are excited to be the first to introduce it to the public and the Prepper community," said Phil Burns, co-founder of The American Preppers Network.
The SCape CO/ CBRN30 is the only mask that meets the stringent NIOSH standards for a CBRN escape respirator with carbon monoxide protection. It protects users from chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and carbon monoxide threats, including fires (the most common threat to the general population). Most victims of fire are not injured by heat or flames, but rather by smoke and toxic gases, especially carbon monoxide. Protection from CO could mean the difference between life and death for people trying to evacuate homes or buildings during a fire.
"The purpose of the escape mask is to put it on so you can breathe, grab your family, and get out safely," said Burns. It is compact, comes in a wearable pouch, and is brightly labeled to assist in escape operations.
ILC Dover has a long history of protecting people from extremely dangerous toxins and elements in some of the most demanding environments - including space and the battlefield. The SCape CO/CBRN30, approved by FEMA, provides the highest level of protection available and is the most user-friendly escape mask in the world.
