Our department uses 4 colors. White= Chief, Asst. Chief, Captains Red= Lieutenant/Safety Officer Black= Firefighters & Yellow= Probationary.

We recently went to this over the 5 colors that we were using. We determined that we would group our 2 Chiefs and our 2 Captains together to make our officers easier to locate on scenes. And believe it or not, it has definately helped, espicially when you have 3-4 departments together working one incident..

Good Luck!

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
