Protection Starts at the Top with the Legend X

As a firefighter, you need to be ready for action at a moment’s notice. But first, you need to be adequately prepared with the proper personal protective equipment (PPE). Whether it be to protect against inhaling potentially dangerous smoke, debris, or toxins or protecting your skin from searing heat, proper use of PPE is paramount. With that said, be sure to remember that safety starts at the top, as protecting your head with a sturdy, reliable helmet can prevent head injuries that could lead to acute- or chronic-health conditions.
