    Thumbs down Helmet Weight

    So far, Ive heard two people tell me the same thing - dont let children try on your helmet. The weight of the helmet is enough to break a young childs neck. Just a warning for everyone out there. Use more caution when letting children try on the gear.

    There was an incident of that a few years ago in the town next to us, my 2nd Lt. was on that dept at that time, so now he puts like 3 of them plastic helmets on each of the trucks up in the cab.

    It is true the weight of a helmet worn by a young child could cause a cervical spine injury. I have a 3 yr old and a 7 year old neither one of them is permitted to wear my helmets. Please be careful something as innocent as this could ruin a child's life forever remember they are just starting life. I went and bought each of them a plastic to helmet to wear.

    Exclamation

    I DON'T LET MY SISTER (12) PLAY WITH MY PPE OR TRY IT ON . IT'S NOT FOR PLAY IT'S FOR YOUR PROTECTION. GEAR COULD HAVE TOXINS ON IT AND OTHER STUFF YOU DON'T WANT KIDS TO BE EXPOSED TO SO KEEP IT AWAY FROM THEM.
