Bullard offers an array of fire helmet fits and styles that are NFPA certified.

What is NFPA?

Established in 1896, the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) is a leading advocate of fire prevention and is an authoritative source on public safety.

A major focus of NFPA is the development, publication, and dissemination of codes and standards for the fire service. NFPA codes and standards are developed by about 250 committees, each of which represents a balance of affected interests.

In fact, the 300 NFPA codes and standards influence every building, process, service, design, and installation in the United States, as well as many of those used in other countries.


How do I know if a helment meets NFPA standards?

Check the label. Look for the compliance statement and the certification organization’s mark. The compliance statement indicates that the specific product meets the requirements of the relevant NFPA standards. Language such as “Designed to meet …” or “Meets the relevant portions of …” are not true compliance statements. Only products that meet all requirements of an NFPA standard, including independent third-party certification, can carry a compliance statement.

You can check for third-party certification by finding the certification organization’s mark on the product label. Only product labels with a mark such as those certified by Underwriters Laboratories or the Safety Equipment Institute (SEI) have met all the rigors of a third-party certification process required by each NFPA product standard.
