ill start from the bottom down

In LAFD we use: White, Red, Orange, Yellow, Black, and Blue

-Chiefs (Fire, Battlion, Division, Assistant) = white
-Arson Investigators = Red
-Captains = Orange
-Firefighters, Firefighter Paramdeics & Rated Members (Engineers, A/O's etc...) = Yellow
-Rookies = Yellow with NO LAFD helemt shield
-Explorers = Black
-Single Function Paramedics (not firefighters) = Blue

Not fire department, but these guys show up at most of our large incidents:
-C.E.R.T (Community Emergency Responce Teams) = Green Helmets
chiefs=white Lt.& Capt.=red Safety officer=blue FF=black jr.=yellow
White=Chief, Deputy Chief, Asst. Chief
Red=Lieutenant Captain
Yellow= JR and PROBE and marked with wording.
white...chief and asst chiefs

black with white shield...cpt and lt

black with black shield...firefighter

black with green shield...jr firfighter

black with orange shield...probationary ff
white=chief & ast. chief yellow=cpt. & 1st-2nd lt. red= ff
We only have three colors. White for chief and deputy chief, red for captain and lieutenant, and black for all firefighters that are not line officers.
white helmets are the chiefs and Red helmets are Capteins,firefighter have yellow helmets and the explores are the same as the paid guys. we keep it basic.
