        We replace our lids (Bullard FXs) if they're ten years or older.

        Members can purchase their own Cairns 1010 or 1044, which is what I did; I have the 1044 in black with the Bourkes and Defender shield, and I love it (that is, once I got used to the weight and size of it).

          i don't see the point of having bourkes and having the defender. i have the 1010 and i just have the defender, i think you only need bourkes if you use goggles. but then again i am just an explorer. but our hand me down helmets are no more than 5 years, my capt said he wouldn't even trust us explorers with helmets older than that. but once again im just an explorer so you can take what i said or leave it.

                    NFPA Standard 1851 (2008 edition), states that all parts of the structural firefighting ensemble shall be retired 10 year from the manuafacture date. The ensemble includes garmet, hood, gloves, boots and helmet.

                      Also, I am unaware of what history is behind any of these helmets. They could have been dropped repeatedly, had a well fall on it, or been in a 1000* fire.

                      I'm mainly looking to get a way to talk people into getting new helmets.
                      The paradox dear colleague.
                      Frankly I would like to be able to have such a helmet, even 20 years, yet is helmet. We headphones equipped with plastic containers, pure (PET)
                      I enclose some pictures you can see what we have helmets equipped.
                      Honestly, I wish I had my hand a helmet old and I would be interested if you can buy sale to sale because I can not afford to buy a new one, being almost as wage costs

                              Indeed, but we have corrupt leaders.
                              After all, every nation has the leaders it deserves. God wanted I was born here and he also hope to help me do my duty to my people safe
