  • Junior and Explorer Helmets

    I am a junior firefighter in Ohio at a small volunteer department. My question is, what color helmets do different departments or explorer posts use? Our's are yellow, like the cadets of the department, because that's what we are treated as.

        My department all firefighters (full, cadet, junior) wear yellow helmets and officers (chief, assistant chief, captain) have different color helmets. However my department also utilizes juniors and cadets at a level most departments do not.

          If you want an accurate answer to your question, do a simple search of the forums for helmet color. I'm quite sure you will quickly realize that there is absolutely no standard beyond whatever the individual department or (in our case) mutual aid association/area dictates....

            That's why I am asking, I am just curious as to what colors different departments use. I know that there is no standard for colors.

                I would suggest that you check with your Mutual Aid departments and see what helmet color(s) they use for different levels and if possible adopt the most common system in your Mutual Aid area, that could make things easier for everyone involved on big calls.

                  Dont worry about it, get used to attitudes like that if your gonna be in the fire service. L.A. City has Black, but like others have said you will see different colors. The main thing is the explore's helmets should all be the same color and different from the vet's helmets.

                  Good luck..work hard on your resume and dont give up. Also get your EMT and start working on a private ambulance

                    I've got two different helmets for 2 different departments. 1 is black with an orange probie shield and the other orange. The orange one is like the ones miami uses and the black is a cairns 1044 (love the cairns). I like the look of the 1044 better, but the orange one is easier to distinguish.

                      We have either yellow moderns or black traditional's at my department, depending on your station, I have a black Cairns 1010, all juniors wear full black turnouts as apposed to tan for the seniors however, so that either way they are easily distinguishable as juniors weather or not they have their helmet on.

                        In my dept. Firefighters,engineers,and explorers all wear black. Lieutenants and captains wear red and chiefs wear white- Now with that being said black helmets have black shields, red helmets have white shields and chiefs have gold leafs, BUT IF YOU ARE AN EXPLORER YOU HAVE AN ORANGE SHIELD. Our turnouts are the same except our tags say EXPLORER instead of a name.

                          What is the difference between a Jr, an explorer and a cadet?
                          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!

                            In my area an Junior firefighter is a member of a department but is not old enough to be a true volunteer/full-time (18 years). A Firefighter Explorer is the same thing except it is (technically) run by the boy scouts of america AND explorers often compete in various firefighting based events. A cadet is much different, a cadet is often a member of a larger (occasionally smaller) department and is still in the training/probationary position before becoming a volunteer or career firefighter.

                              interesting... I always thought anyone under 18 is either a Jr, cadet, or explorer (depending on how the system was set up), and anyone who wasn't considered an interior FF (or was simply new the department, and in their probationary period) was considered a probationary FF.
