A "Scott" bottle is short for a Scott Air Pack or SCBA - self contained breathing apparatus. It is that yellow bottle you see on firemens backs that contain the breathing air for use when they are going into an area full of smoke. In addition, they are located throughout facilities where you may come in contact with noxious fumes and/or gases and you need to carry your own air. Not sure how long it would keep the valves in place but the bottle does have an indicator on it to alarm you when it is starting to get low.
