The purpose of the article is to carry out an analysis of modern fire-fighting equipment and lighting accessories based on a review of scientific journals and technical passports of lighting equipment. A comparative analysis of fire-fighting helmets in the aspect of comparison of lighting accessories has been carried out in the article; factors that should be considered when choosing lighting equipment have been determined. A comparative analysis of qualitative and technical characteristics of fire-fighting lanterns and their positive and negative sides have been carried out based on these factors. The characteristics of auxiliary lighting equipment have been described. The materials of the study included works published during the last eleven years which made it possible to present the latest finding on the study subject and to draw the relevant for future studies conclusions. The results of the study allowed outlining the significance of the lighting and orientation of light fire equipment in eliminating fires and rescuing victims (both civilians and fire service personnel). The main functional and technical advantages and disadvantages of the widely used equipment are highlighted in the study.
