Helmet lights have been around for many years. While not every firefighter or fire department chooses to utilize them, helmet lights are excellent tools that provide necessary illumination in high stakes situations.
The unfortunate reality of public safety is that accidents and incidents happen at all hours of the day and in some of the most inconvenient locations. There will be a need for portable scene lighting to illuminate an incident at night. Scene lighting helps you to do your job more effectively and safely.
Right angle lights are considered the firefighter’s primary light source. These L-shaped lights were first developed in the early 1900s and used by soldiers in World War II and the Vietnam War. These chest-worn lights utilized heavy D cell batteries but enabled hands-free operation in low light conditions.
