La Verne Fire Department
The Firefighter’s helmet is an iconic and traditional symbol of our profession. To those on the job, our sense of duty is rooted in a past well over 200 years old. As one of the decreasing number of remaining fire departments over 110 years old, La Verne Fire is taking it back to our roots. At today’s all-hands meeting, LVFD Firefighters received their new “traditional” style fire helmets and can be seen wearing them on emergency responses as we speak. Today’s implementation means greater emergency scene accountability, safety and department pride!The traditional fire helmet dates to the early 1800’s, driven by a need for the first functionally designed helmet specific to Firefighting. Beginning with the representative eagle on top to embody a Firefighter’s pride, courage and valor, these helmets were also designed with a tall dome to better deflect burning debris, a larger rear brim to channel heated water away from entering a Firefighter’s collar and a brass shield mount for breaking glass. Modern versions of the traditional design are both OSHA and NFPA compliant to offer the highest level of protection for our personnel. We look forward to sharing our new “old” helmets with the community, so please, don’t be shy to ask for an up close look if you see us out and about!#lavernefiredepartment #lavernefire #lvfd #laverne #firefighterhelmet #newhelmets ...
