SUBS Central Command for Maritime Emergencies

The water protection ships of the German coast guard in Cuxhaven are equipped with a protective air system from etna. In the event of an accident, this ensures that the air is filtered – so that the rescue workers can carry out their important work without hindrance. For example, in the event of a fire in the open sea, the fire fighting ships have to drive very close to the burning ship in order to get the flames under control. The helpers are protected from the effects of the acrid smoke by etna activated carbon filters.
