    Default Chicago Fire Helmets

    In 2006, the Chicago Fire Department switched from 3/4 length jackets and boots to full turnout gear from Lion Apparel. I've been researching on the internet and keep seeing guys posting that the CFD is using Cairns 880's. But looking at pictures from yesterdays tragedy, the helmets I see the guys wearing look more like Paul Conways. Can anyone clarify what helmets the firefighters of the past and present are issued?

    As far as I know they issue 880s at the commissary. Not sure if they allow personal helmets or not.
