United States Synthetic helmet (˜1995)
In this collection since: 28.08.2016
0819 Fire helmet from USA. The helmet was built by E.D.Bullard & Co in Kentucky USA. The helmet type is: Advent A2. The company Bullard built the two helmet forms Advent A1 and A2 as well as the USXR (see helmet 0838, USA) specially for use in rescue operations. The orange helmet was produced in February 1995. It has an additional visor which is placed on the front screen. A rubber band that runs around the helmet at the back holds it in position. At the side of the helmet are reflective stickers with the inscription "Ambulance". At the front is a printed badge, not attached by Bullard. It shows a square, a kind of "ship's screw". To which organization this badge belongs, is unclear.

The company Bullard describes her helmet as follows:
