Second Recipient Announced for MSA Cairns® XF1 Fire Helmet Giveaway

Congratulations to Chief Thomas Sharpe of the Hilda (SC) Fire Department for winning a personalized MSA Cairns® XF1 Fire Helmet. MSA is donating a total of three Cairns® XF1 Fire Helmets to volunteer firefighters that are also NVFC members in 2021 to help first responders improve their health and safety. Sharpe is the second recipient.

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.

The last opportunity to enter to win an MSA Cairns® XF1 Fire Helmet opens September 1. One firefighter will be awarded one helmet via random selection. Participants must be a volunteer firefighter and a member of the NVFC at their time of entry.
