All life support devices discussed in this chapter are designed to allow the wearers to breath (and thereby to escape), continue work, and assist in saving the ship and their fellow crew members. Remember that the crew must save the ship or no one will be saved. Therefore, the purpose of this section of the chapter is to provide you  with  information  on  the  emergency  escape breathing  device  (EEBD),  supplemental  emergency egress  device  (SEED),  oxygen  breathing  apparatus (OBA),  and  self-contained  breathing  apparatus (SCBA). EMERGENCY ESCAPE BREATHING DEVICE (EEBD) Studies of fire casualties have proven that most casualties are the result of smoke and toxic fumes and not from the fire itself. For this reason, the EEBD (fig. 12-3) was developed for emergency escape. It provides the wearer with 15 minutes of breathable air. It is to be worn until you can get topside during evacuation from below deck spaces. The EEBD is designed to provide respiratory and eye protection in an atmosphere that will not support life. With the proper training you should be able  to  activate  and  don  an  EEBD  in  less  than  30 seconds. 12-14 Student Notes: Figure 12-3. —emergency escape breathing device (EEBD)
