(left to right) Edina Fire Dept. Lt. Todd Porthan wore the new Euro style fire helmet with built in light and visors and Edina Fire Capt. Joel Forseth wore the older traditional fire hat. Photographed on 3/7/13. In a proud profession like firefighting, tradition matters. It's why a fierce eagle head that can catch on falling wires in a burning building still decorates the top of traditional fire helmets, and why some departments still use leather helmets. But a technology revolution is sweeping the profession. New helmets that look like a cross between a football and a Star Wars storm troopers helmet are now being used in Edina and Eagan, and Edina is using expensive "fire suppression grenades" that are activated by pulling a pin in some circumstances. While the grenades seem to be universally embraced, the helmets are more controversial. The first young firefighter who was ordered to try the new helmet in Eagan was dubbed "Rosie" -- the maid robot in "The Jetsons" -- by fellow firefighters. Then one of the veterans tried the hat on, and liked it.] Bruce Bisping/Star Tribune bbisping@startribune.com Joel Forseth, Todd Porthan/source.(Photo By Bruce Bisping/Star Tribune via Getty Images)
