    How do you know it's false unless you respond?

    FF41230...concerning your e-mail...after reading my original post it's clear what you were asking about, but that was website that I put up basically just for my presentation, which was over 3 years ago now...it is no long up.

    A good bit of my information for the paper that I did came from articles on The American Fire Service that originally appeared in the print version of Firehouse Magazine, but are now on this site. Read anything you can get your hands on that has been written by Paul Hashagen.

    I don't know about the the race car style helmets, but I think the fishbowl helmets are cheaper the manufacture, thus cheaper for a fire department to purchase. It's a money thing.

    For me? Traditional all the way!
