Government warns on ‘Help Mask’ marketing


The attention of the Government of Monaco has been drawn to commercial flyers distributed by a company called Help Mask, which claim that its product provides 60 minutes of breathing without fresh air in the event of a fire.

Monaco’s fire-fighting services have serious reservations about the alleged effectiveness of this mask, the Government said. Subsequently, the Government is warning residents to be extremely vigilant if they have already acquired such a device, or are considering doing so.

Also, it is important to point out that although the emergency numbers 18 and 112 are included in the prospectuses sent out by the company, no recommendation has been made by the relevant departments on the products in question.
