Only one year after revolutionizing the firefighter safety market with the introduction of the industry’s first – and still only –Thermal Imaging Camera integrated into firefighter’s breathing apparatus, MSA Safety Incorporated (MSA) plans to turn heads once again – this time with helmets.  Recently, the company reported it will debut a new jet-style fire helmet – called the Cairns XF1 – at the yearly Fire Department Instructor’s Conference (FDIC) in Indianapolis, Ind., planned for later this month.

According to Steve Blanco, President of MSA’s business in the Americas, the XF1 helmet is just one of several new and innovative products the company is introducing that support overall firefighter safety.  “Protecting firefighters is what we do.  And for over a century, we’ve been committed to continuously innovating on behalf of firefighters across the globe,” stated Mr. Blanco.

The Cairns XF1 represents a new addition to the MSA firefighter helmet line, and is one that represents a important style departure from the “brim-style” helmet traditionally preferred by U.S. firefighters.  The new style delivers improved technology integration while maintaining the quality, durability, and safety performance firefighters have come to expect from MSA’s Cairns brand.

The helmet incorporates LED lights, an integrated communication system and can easily be disassembled to clean, thereby helping firefighters comply with various cancer prevention directives published by leading agencies like the Firefighter Cancer Support Network (FCSN).

“MSA’s mission has always been about protecting the health and safety of workers, and the products we develop address the protective equipment aspects of that mission.  But our joint venture with O2X more about habits, practices and overall firefighter health, and what we, as a leading safety equipment manufacturer, can do to support the industry’s growing focus and awareness of this important issue.”
