    WORCESTER-- The irreverent Denis Leary has a wisecrack for just about everything, purposely or subconsciously dropping an obscenity here or there for shock value.
    The shtick has won the Worcester born and bred comedian acclaim as an actor, writer and director.
    But when it comes to a discussion of firefighters and their role in society, Mr. Leary is all business.

    All About Helmets Traditional Vs. Modern

    Cairns Brothers Aluminum 1970s
    A helmet is only as good as the head inside it.
    I preferred the Cairns Aluminum helmet from
    the 1970,s. It was great for breaking windows,
    and if you wanted to be in style you wore it backwards.
    That way nobody knew if you were coming or going.
    Then some genius said, hey you could get electrocuted
    if you came in contact with an electrical source. So that was the end of the Cairns Aluminum Helmet..
    But then it must have been the same genius that said lets get rid of the wooden ladders because they were too heavy.
    So what do we buy ?(Right, you got it)Aluminum metal ladders because they are lighter, but dont they conduct electricity?
    Then someone came out with the plastic helmets.
    Well , until you see one melted at a fire or melted
    stuck to your head, what can I say.. Go Cairns leather
    traditional and dont worry about the weight.
    And dont be the guy who carrys it under his arm,
    because it might mess up his hair.But whatever
    you buy, treat your helmet with respect, for the
    life it saves may be your own..Stay Safe Brother
    Heres a good link about Helmets

    P/S Use the flip up shields .. They work fine.
    Just drill two holes, screws in , and your ready
    for action....
