Emergency Escape Breathing Apparatus (EEBA)

Emergency Escape Breathing Apparatuses (EEBAs) are units intended to be used in the case of a sudden change from breathable air to an Immediately Dangerous to Life & Health (IDLH) atmosphere, such as in the case of a ruptured pipe containing toxic gas. EEBAs provide either 5 or 10 minutes of breathable air to facilitate the quick exit to an area of safety.
