I am new to the fire buff thing. I see many people collect all kind of antique firefighting equipment. My question is does anyone know what type of gear the major fire departments issued including helmets. For example, I found on the web that FDNY has issued Cairns N5A helmets to the fireman untill 1992 when they started to issue the Morning Pride Ben 2's. I also learned that when the started ito issue turnout gear, they had Janesville gear and then they switched to Morning Pride. I also know they wear Scott SCBA's and Pro leather boots.
Also, if anyone can point me in the right direction to finding this info. I realize that departments switch equipment manufactures often, but I hope you can help.
I am looking for this type of info for the following fire departments and info would be greatly appreciate.
And other larger city/town
Thank you very much
