Fire Academy Friday: Advanced Inspection of Helmets


LION Fire Academy provides fire department members with online training on PPE and Continuing Education Units for successful completion.  Fire instructors can incorporate PPE education into their classes and have their students earn credits.  If you are a fire student or contemplating a career in firefighting, you’ll find helpful quizzes, videos and links on PPE and other firefighting topics.

LION Fire Academy is certified to offer Continuing Education credits and satisfy the NFPA 1851 training requirements for Advanced Inspection, Advanced Cleaning and Basic Repairs.

Learn how to determine if your structural fire fighting helmet is fit for duty, if additional inspection or testing is required, if repair is needed or if your helmet needs to be retired in this week’s video.

After you’ve finished watching, take the test.
