Fire helmets can be cumbersome and heavy, and helmets designed for climbing, waterrescue and bike teams have their place during specialty operations. But what can provide comfortable head protection inside and outside the ambulance? The third generationAmbulance Vehicle Crew (AVC3)HelmetfromAllMed is designed to never extend more than11/2" from your head. This makes it compact enough to wear inside tight spaces during extrication. (No more piles of helmets sitting on top of a mangled car.) The AVC3 can also be worn in the ambulance to reduce your risk of head injury in a crash. The double-curved visor allows it to fit closely to your face, but not in front of your nose, limiting fogging. An attached LED light makes it easy to see, and a black reflective band makes it easily visible in the dark.
