Bump, will try to snap a pic later tonight. Unfortunately, will have to be repainting mine soon. Damn the promotions with no pay

Not my current helmet, as I'm not at the firehouse tonight.

Flashover in a townhouse basement will kill a leather... . Had to replace this lid with a new one after that fire. She served me well... repainted a dozen or so times over a 7 year period.



Oh, and nice pic, my 5xx-series amigo...

Suffered some burns on the ears, forearms. The inner liner of my coat was scorched pretty well. My crew and I had entered the basement for a search, reported that the homeowner was still inside in the basement. We'd entered through a sliding glass door with two PW cans (Rescue Co.) and managed to get most of the basement searched before deciding it was getting dicey, and turned to get out, making my guys leave first. It flashed as the first guy was within a few feet of the door. I pushed my second guy out as it got the most intense. They were uninjured, I got a few first and second degree burns.

Turns out the homeowner was a 'Nam vet with some pretty bad PTSD, and he'd decided to light his place off after thinking "Charlie" was hiding in the basement. Fire in the basement and climbing the stairs to the first floor as we entered. Even better, just 30 minutes after we cleared the scene with the engine co. and FM, we were redispatched to the same address and arrived with fire on all three floors and through the roof. Dude had torched the place again just after we left.

Good times!

glad to hear you got out of there in good shape. Had a friend of mine get caught in a flash down in PG county, and due to different PPE down there, got burned over most of his body, and almost died from his injuries.

If you ever make it out to Long Island, the first round is on me.

Nice to see this many leathers out there. Older pic of the back of mine, can't find one of the front at the moment
