Each firefighter is issued a full set of turnout gear: Traditional Style Helmet, Turnout Coat, Turnout Pants with either rubber or leather fire boots, Flash-hood, Firefighting gloves. Members are currently issued Morning Pride Tails turnouts but we have several sets of Janesville and Globe Cairns gear as well. The Cairns 880 helmet is the current issue helmet but, we still use the Cairns 1010. Some firefighters have purchased Cairns N5A or N6A Leather helmets and use those instead of the 880's or the 1010's. If a firefighter purchases thier own gear it must meet or exceed the departments specifications and be approved by the Fire Chief. Handlights and Portable 800Mhz radios are available to firefighters on each apparatus. Each piece of breathing apparatus now has a handlight and a radio.
The SCBA (Self Contained Breathing Apparatus) that we use is the MSA Firehawk Mask Mounted Regulator(MMR) on a Black Rhino carrier and harness with a Stealth air cylinder. These SCBA hold approximately 30 minuites of breathing air. We also have integrated PASS (Personal Alert Safety System) alarms on all of or SCBA. PASS alarms help us to locate downed or injured firefighters.
