12 Days of Firemen - Day #4

The winners of Day #3 in the 12 Days of Firemen have been chosen! They are:

Correct answer: Lisa B.
Creative answer: Kayla F.

People had lots of fun with the wetdown ceremony, I'm glad to see. Now on to the question for Day #4.

How much does a firefighter's helmet weigh?

As usual, research is allowed. (If it involves asking a friendly fireman at your local coffee shop, all the better.) Prizes will be awarded to one randomly selected correct answer, and one creative answer.

For this question, I've consulted the rules committee (me) and determined that posting a pic of a firefighter in his/her helmet is an acceptable "creative" answer.

Today, the first prize will be hot cocoa and a book (my perfect holiday break!): a Bachelor Firemen mug, organic Alaska hot chocolate, and your choice of any signed book of mine (or eBook, if you prefer.) The "creative" prize will be a Bachelor Fireman gift pack.

You have until 10am EST tomorrow to leave your answer either here or on the Facebook party page. This promotion is in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by, or associated with Facebook. Have fun!


  1. A firefighter's helmet is usually made out of fiberglass and weighs about 5 lbs.

  2. it weighs less than the ax in his other hand

  3. Love the picture. The helmets are lightweight, so they don't weigh you down, but stay on when needed.
