My department goes as follows:
White = Chief, Captains and Rescue Officers FireMedic 3 and 4
Red= Driver/Engineer
Yellow=Firefighter
Blue=Firefighter Paramedic and FireMedic 1
White-Chiefs
Yellow-Captain
Red-LT's
Green-Safety
Black-Firefighters
blue shields-EMS
Orange-Juniors
In my dept we all have Ben 2 traditional style.
White-Cheif and ass cheif
Red- All other officers
Black- Firefighters
Yellow dome type ugly uncomfortable type helmet- rookies and explorers
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 .
My Department:
White =Chief and Assistant Chief
Red =Captains
Black=Firefighters
Yellow=Probationary Firefighters
Blue=Junior Firefighters
the way our fire dept works, is that the chief and asst chief wear white, the captains and lieutenants wear red, firefighters wear yellow, and emts wear blue
Regular members wear black Cairns 1010's, new members /rookies get yellow Cairns Metro's. No distinction in colors for officers as almost anyone can be command at an incident.
Swanton Vt.
Chief & Asst. Chief's White
Capt's. Red
Lt's. Yellow
FF's Black
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
Oh, you are sooo my hero!
White = Chief officer (Chief - Deputy Chief), Red = "Squad A" (Heavy Rescue one of the busiest in country firehouse magazine), Black = Engine Co., Black w/ Red top = Ladder/Tower Co. BROCKTON, MA
White : Lt., Captain,all dept. chief, orange :Safty , Blue : EMS, Black : Firefight and Red : Rookie.
