When You Go In...

Cairns LogoWhile searching for victims at the scene of a fully involved single-family dwelling, Lt. Paul Machado and Lt. Jeff Mello from Fall River, MA, were forced to jump from a second-story window when their exit was cut off by flames.  Wearing Cairns Helmets, both firefighters miraculously escaped without a single mark to their heads or faces. 

"If I didn't have my helmet on, I don't know what my head would look like today" said Lt. Mello, who wore his Cairns 880 Helmet.  Lt. Machado, explained, "not a single hair on my head was singed," all thanks to his Cairns 1010 Helmet.
