ok what colors of helmets does your dept use and what do they mean?????? My dept uses White,Red,Black,Yellow,Blue,and Orange. White= Chief Red= Captain Black= Lt Yellow= firefighter Blue= Safty Orange= Rookie
thats what ours are but we have a first responder and emt that has to have a blue he says. so he has a blue but he bought it. we dont have an ambulance but do first respond when we get called . at least we are the only fd in our county of 14 depts one being pd that has triditional helmets and leather globe boots they are nice the pd dept has rubber boots
Here's my question about helmet colors: Does anyone know what the San Francisco helmet colors mean? I've been watching The Battalion (www.thebattalion.tv) and it seems the Truckies have Red and White panels on the their Black helmets. Is that correct? Do Engineers/Drivers use different colors?
Also, with so many different helmet color schemes, is there an NFPA standard for helmet color designations?
