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
IN THE PHILIPPINES, THE BUREAU OF FIRE PROTECTION USES THE HELMET COLOR CODING.THE THE YELLOW HELMET IS FOR THE VOLUNTEER FIRE BRIGADES,ORANGE FOR THE SPECIAL RESCUE UNIT(SRU) OF THE BUREAU,THE BLUE FOR THE EMERGENCY MEDICAL SERVICE(EMS),BLACK FOR THE NON-OFFICERS,RED FOR THE LEUTENANT AND CAPTAIN,AND WHITE FOR THE MAJOR UP TO 2 STAR GENERAL.but sometimes it is not observed or being followed due to lack of equipment and the BUREAU OF FIRE PROTECTION is still on its stage of MODERNIZATION,besides, it is not safe to paint the helmets .
Chief & Asst. Chief's White
Explores get a really nasty looking orange
The Capt and LT's are sometime in black leathers and if so the front for an LT is white with black letters and the Capt;s front is white with Red letters
