"Acceptable" Helmets

I went down to a Newton fire station today to see just how different Busa's helmet really was.

I found a group of fighters on their lunch break, and all of them had substantial decorations on their helmets (one, even with a large American flag sticker). Unlike Busa, none of these firefighters have been asked to alter their helmets. Here are some photos:
