What do you do now and what are you planning for the future? Batrus &McCabe is one of two NY area companies authorized to represent and sell The Xcaper Smoke Mask. The Xcaper was designed to combat smoke inhalation, the most common cause of death in every day fires at home, on the subway, or at work. After Sept 11, Fortune500 corporations reassessed their risk potential both in dollars and in human lives and found their emergency preparedness plans seriously lacking. Since then the Xcaper has been purchased as an employee protective device by many large corporations and has become “SOP” as part of new emergency preparedness plans.

Person you admire most (outside of family): The men and women of our armed services for their sacrifices.

If you had to choose another vocation what would it be? I don’t know, I love this one!
