Your fire helmet should be manufactured with a safety-first approach and engineered to provide the highest level of protection. When choosing a Fire or Rescue helmet, it’s important to understand and take into account all of the key features that a helmet should provide.
You may be wondering what questions you should ask yourself when choosing a helmet. Consider the following to start:
- Does the helmet meet the current NFPA standards?
- Is the helmet tested by a third party to meet NFPA standards?
- Is the helmet designed for the hazardous environment you are working in?
- What style is most comfortable to you?
