    There could be a good chance of them being from the West Coast. Some FDs had always had traditionals out here. Some depts. went to traditionals after 9/11 and some switch back to modern.

    The Bay Area of Cali is still pretty traditional not only in helmets, but over all operations.

    You will a mix of helmets here- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ww2zlcq5U9Y

    Hope that helps.

    Majority of departments in NorCal wear traditional helmets unless your Calfire & Marin County. Most of the "LA Style" helmets are worn in the Central/SoCal areas. A lot of paid departments also went to black turnouts after 9/11. To show support of FDNY.

    Just to clearify, there is no such "LA style" helmet out there. There is one brand we often see in the media.
