This first item is a cast-iron Gamewell alarm box with an "Arrestolarm" device mounted on the top. This was a false alarm deterent. There is an Arrestolarm ad here on the web site. If you would like to see the ad, just click here: http://www.youngstownfire.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=41&start=0.

A Kontrol fire extinguisher made by Stempel of St. Louis, Missouri. I believe this company was affilated with Robinson Fire Apparatus. Also, this is an apparatus type extinguisher with the wheel type handle on the top.

The YFD helmet does have a metal shield. Here is a photo from Howard showing that piece along with a Texaco helmet, Venice F.D., and a Cincinnati FD/PD alarm box door.
