    Exclamation 2012 NFPA Regs

    I posted this question yesterday in the wrong forum so I'll keep it short and sweet. I am having trouble locating the 2012 NFPA regs. Are you still able to keep goggles in your pocket or do they have to be attached to the helmet? Thank you.

    NFPA 1971, a standard, not regulation, is in revision cycle now and will be published in 2013.

    The current (2007) edition states: "Where the goggle component is selected in accodance with 6.5.2(6), the goggles shall be permitted to be unattached, not assembled, to the helmet." (

    So yeah, if your state is an NFPA state or your state has adopted 1971 you can keep them in your pocket... unless your department's SOP/rules state otherwise.
