Abstract

Purpose. The aim of the work was to analyze the problems associated with the operation of fire helmets, and search for solutions at the design and production stages. The task of the study was to identify the technological and operational features of fire helmets, the most widely distributed in the fire departments.

Methods. Questionnaire of the employees to estimate a number of technical indicators of the helmets which are in operation in the division.

Findings. Based on the requirements of the national standard GOST R 53269-2009 a number of technical indicators have been formed that characterize the main operational properties of fire helmets.

Application field of research. On the basis of answers of users technological and operational features of definite models of fire helmets most widespread in divisions of fire service are established.

Conclusions. General aggregate proposals were formed to improve the performance properties of the SPM, SPM-S, KP-2002, SKPS helmets.
