Congratulations to Chief Garland Goracke from Meadow Grove (NE) Volunteer Fire & Rescue for winning a personalized MSA Cairns® XF1 Fire Helmet. Goracke is the third and final winner to receive a helmet from MSA in 2021 through the MSA Cairns® XF1 Fire Helmet Giveaway in partnership with the National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC).

Innovative and up-to-date equipment can help improve responder health and safety. That’s why MSA and the NVFC teamed up in 2021 to provide a Cairns® XF1 Fire Helmet to three volunteer firefighters across the U.S. who are NVFC members.

The jet-style design of the Cairns® XF1 Fire Helmet reduces snag hazards, provides a personalized fit, and houses its own integrated light module. Plus, the soft goods are removable, washable, and replaceable. Learn more about the helmet and giveaway at
