Firefighter Helmet Care and Use
To ensure firefighter helmets provide adequate protection, remain comfortable and have an extended wear life, it is important to follow manufacturer's instructions for proper use, inspection, care, maintenance, storage, and retirement.
The comfort level of a helmet is much more than a matter of personal preference. It directly corresponds to how closely the fit of your helmet matches the dimensions of your head. Since no two heads are alike, this requires certain components of the helmet be adjustable so each can properly fit your head’s unique size and shape.
Comfort is also a safety concern. It’s well established that a comfortable helmet will be worn longer with less fatigue. The below LION resources will help you ensure your LION firefighter helmet fits as it should. Learn how to size, inspect and use your firefighter helmet.
