Let me get this straight...you can choose which helmet your going to wear? Even though you're in other equipment supplied by the department (ie: coat and pants) you will be wearing other safety equipment supplied by your full-time employer?
Who's SOG's do you operate under? And, does the fire department lose an important member of their team while your wearing "blue"?
Are there any other departments here in Canada that have SOG's allowing this? Anyone?

white= chief, deputy chief
red= captain and officers
orange hard hat type (bullard advent)= EMS
Fire & Rescue Service

Safety Officer : Blue
Nothing for probies.. we know who they are
Most of us have our #s on our helmets, some of us have names.
Our paramedics -if they wear their safeties for MVCs, they don't usually- are orange.
[font=Verdana]Red- Those not Competent to lead
Yellow- To stupid to realize how screw up things are
Yellow with red reflective stickers- Those with the least amount of experience and most likely to get hurt doing something they have not been trained to do.
The core group of the department that was dedicated to professionalism and tried to do something to help their fellow firefighters and their families should the worse ever happen to them on a call:- [font=Verdana]Denied reapplication and forced to retire by a corrupt Regional District lead by the areas largest burrocrate with a personal vendetta.[/font]
