    Hello, when you get with a dept in cali, insist to the crew that you want to wear a NewYorker or a SamHouston helmet.

    nikki, those are the two types of leather firefighter helmets that are popular on the east coast. it hasn't caught on yet in the west, but don't worry, it will soon.

    real firefighters wear leather helmets!!!!

    also, don't forget to post a pic of yourself in the "faces behind the post" thread in the off duty section
    If my basic HazMat training has taught me nothing else, it's that if you see a glowing green monkey running away from something, follow that monkey!

    Hi Nicole,

    Nice to see another female on here, there is a Women In Emergency Services section on here too. I am a volunteer firefighter and I hope to go to paramedic school in a year or two.

    You are entering an awsome and fast paced profession. I am a FF/Emt-I in the Dakotas and have been for 15 years. I love it and wouldn't give it up for the world. Take care and work safe.
