Abstract: This document presents an innovative system for the traditional air respirator used for fire rescue. This system took advantage of the Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems inertial acceleration sensor to supervise the real time posture of the personnel, conducted the pressure measurement by replacing the mechanical watch with electronic pressure transmitter, and transferred the residual aeration to the helmet and handheld instrument of the team members with 433 MHz wireless sensor network. The handheld collected the information, and sent it to the remote command center through the telecom General Packet Radio Service network. The management software can achieve the real-time information from the firemen. The system has a great significance in real application, which guarantees the life safety of the firemen to a great degree, and changes the situation in which each fireman is an information isolated island.


Keywords: Fire rescue, Positive pressure respirator, Wireless sensor network, Inertial acceleration sensor, GPRS.
