"OK dude, Helmets are ineffective safety devices that EMS workers don't deserve right? They should probably be banned. Who is talking out of their ass.  Yes, I designed this helmet with the help of automotive safety…"

"It is often not the person behind the wheel of the ambulance that's dangerous, its all those other fools on the road. Yes ambulances need to be designed to be safer. The back of an ambulance is completely unregulated. It is exempt from any and…"

"I received this e-mail today; I am writing to tell you about my experience with my new B2 Paramedic Helmet by Head Protection Technologies.  I have been working in EMS since 1975.  I have seen many changes in EMS in those years and with…"

"You have no idea what you are talking about. Go cart racers wear helmet, dirt track racers wear helmets, NASCAR racers wear helmets, Drag car racers wear helmets, F1 racers wear helmets. You live in a cave. I'm done with you. "

"The only published paper looking at helmets in EMS is this one http://objectivesafety.net/LevickIEA2006.pdf.   It mainly examines features desirable, reviews potentially appropriate standards, and surveys user acceptance. We used this guidance…"

"All of these come with a warning label that says "Not for use in a moving motor vehicle". How can that be a Paramedic Helmet?"
