FireRescue1 Executive Editor Chief Marc Bashoor speaks with Eric Buzard, fire service marketing manager for MSA, about the features in the new MSA Cairns XF1 helmet, from multiple adjustment points, to easily removable soft components, as well as integrated lighting and communications.

Bashoor asks how reception has been to the non-traditional jet helmet shape of the XF1, which Buzard says has been warm. Buzard related the “light switch moment” when he realized the need for a streamlined helmet, when he came across a motor vehicle accident with firefighters on scene, and witnessed three firefighter helmets sitting on top of the car, obviously not being worn during the rescue operation.
