The concept of a union of men rushing to help victims of fires started in the 1700s by Benjamin Franklin. Now, Firefighters are everyday heroes. They not only turn fire off but they also assist with car accidents and any other emergency calls. The Firefighter technology system has advanced greatly since the 1700s, fire trucks have progressed and even the fire men outfits have improved.
Today, the uniforms are pants and jackets that are fire resistant, oxygen tanks, helmets, and masks. Unlike in the 1700s, there are more and more women every day that are becoming fire fighters. Now you can be a hero for a day and choose from a variety of fire fighter costumes for women, men, boys and girls of all sizes. Add a fire hose or an axe for a more realistic look!
