    Wow! Dano steps up to the plate revealing a snafu in the Firehouse.com's automatic censuring program.

    Having said that, to the original poster, if your question is about the FDNY specifically and you don't work there, it is of no consequence.

    If your question is about Cairns leather helmets, they are not specific to the FDNY and are therefore not NYC helmets. Even so, most fireman could care less what the NFPA has to say about helmet certifications or just about anything else.

    Management is making sure things are done right. Leadership is doing the right thing. The fire service needs alot more leaders and a lot less managers.

    "Everyone goes home" is the mantra for the pussification of the modern, American fire service.


    Comments made are my own. They do not represent the official position or opinion of the Fire Department or the City for which I am employed. In fact, they are normally exactly the opposite.

Morning Pride uses the loop hole that the EZ-Flips are mounted BELOW the brim so the helmet is NFPA compliant. Yes they still melt and will block your view. I wouldn't be surprised if this loop hole is corrected on the next revision.
    that doesn't make sense because all "bourke" style eye shields should b NFPA compliant then, or is MP just the only one to market theirs as such?
