Servicemen like firefighters risk their lives everyday while protecting others. Many of them perform services that go beyond the call of duty, and so many of them do it without a second thought to their own lives. In fact, some firefighters don't see the risk in what they do, and see it as just something they must do. However, their reason for fighting fires doesn't matter, it is still one of the most dangerous jobs, and these men and women deserve the proper protection while protecting others. Besides, each year these people are single-handedly responsible for saving many homes, business, forests, and other properties.
It is imperative that firemen and women have the proper Fire Fighting Equipment available at all times. This is especially true during a fire. And, one of the most important pieces of equipment is the uniform, especially the helmet. Helmets are used to protect the head, eyes, and neck from falling debris, blowing ash, the heat of the fire, and smoke. The head, brain, and neck are the most vulnerable and most important parts of the body. A brain or neck injury could be devastating for any firefighter and their family. So, a helmet that provides ultimate protection is tantamount to the safety of a fireman or woman.
Helmet technology, protection, and design has changed quite a bit in recent years. For example, firefighters are now wearing new, durable Cairns
Helmets. The helmets are made from composite materials, and almost all of them come with multiple safety features, like face shields, Bourkes, and goggles. They are also designed with a Lexan outer dome and high-temperature urethane foam. To keep the neck safe, they are made with large earlaps that are large enough to cover the entire neck area. All helmets are also made with a leather shell and lined with an ABS liner, which keeps the heat out, and the firefighter safe from burns. Inside, helmets fit snugly over the head with an overhead strap to keep the helmet from slipping, and to absorb any impact. Helmets are also height adjustable, so one size can fit all.
Top of the line safety helmets are a requirement for any firefighting crew, and not something that should be taken lightly. These men and women risk their lives for others and their property, and the should have the best in Portable Fire Equipment. This includes everything from drip torches to Wetland Equipment
. Not only does high quality safety equipment save those who save everyone else, it sends a message to firefighters all across America, letting them know that they are valued and they are truly appreciated.
