South Frontenac Fire and Rescue personnel now have 109 new specialized helmets. The helmets increase protection for firefighters with integrated and retractable eye protection. This purchase is thanks to a Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation of Canada grant worth over $51 thousand dollars. Deputy Fire Chief Alex Bennett says “Having the very best equipment means everything because in an emergency, every second counts. An added benefit is the potential for long-term cost savings, since their exceptional durability and performance means they don’t need to be replaced as often.”
South Frontenac Fire and Rescue personnel modelled the new helmets at Firehouse Subs Kingston yesterday.
