Indiana Fire Department Tests European Helmets

WAYNE TOWNSHIP, IN (FOX59) – A firefighting tradition dating back hundreds of years is getting a change in Wayne Township with new helmets the fire department is testing.

The department said it’s working to strike a balance between tradition and safety, but hopes new helmets help cut down on chronic neck injuries. Six firefighters are testing out the European style helmets for safety and comfort. “It was a little bit of a sell to get me to wear this,” firefighter Linise Gordon said.
