Colour Code Helmets

Postby WFD999 » Tue Oct 05, 2004 12:55 am

As a side bar to the gear poll I thought it would be interesting to see how or if any body else has a colour code system to your helmets. In my little world Chief and Deputy are white ( pretty standard) Trianing Officer Red, Captians Red, Dont have any leuy's, Fire fighters Yellow, Probationary Black. Those whom are Frist Responders only are blue and those fire fighters that are cross trianed have a star of life on thier helmets. Have a great one folks.

We run similarly,

White for the Chief
Red for Deputy and Captains
Yellow for LT and Firefighters

For those that are medic trained they where the blue patch on thier respective helmets.

Proby's are also in Yellow, But don't go on calls till after proby is complete

Cheif is white
Platoon Cheif is white
Cheif of Dangerous Goods and Investigations have white
Dont know what District cheifs have but i think they are white'
Officers are Red
Firefighters are Yellow
Probies are yellow as far as i know because thats all i have seen
Medic trained doesnt get any special markings
EMS has blue ones

Im not a firefighter so this might not be 100% right but its pretty close.

Im talking about Edmonton by the way so if anyone sees this and i am wrong they can correct it.

Chief = White
DC = Red
Capt / Luet = Yellow
FF = Black
If it ain't broke.....Give it to a Fireman for a while.
Never be afraid to call out for more chrome. If you can't put it out, Scare it out.
