  • Lifespan of helments and Turnouts ?

    Does anyone know if there NFPA standards on length of service for helments and turnouts? I tired 1971 but did not find anything

    thanks

    Two weeks and three days, anything over that and the PPE suppliers go out of business!

      No, I was just kidding. It's 10 years tops.

          NFPA 1851 is the care and maintenance manual for PPE thats where you will find it.

            We just checked this and found (5) years on helmets. As far as Turnout Jackets/Pants goes, my understanding is (10) years.

                Yeah, sorry about that..... Had my head up a dark, stinky place when I typed it. (10) years is the correct answer.
