That's not right DT!!! Mine is yellow!! For some reason our dept. has to be different. If we go on mutual aid, they could confuse me and the 2nd Cap as their firefighters.
white Chief,Batallion chief or chaplin
red captain/luitentent
yellow fire fighter
blue ems
purple probie
White-- Batt Chief or above
Red-- Captain
Yellow with red letters/numbers-- LT or Engineer
Yellow with black numbers/letters-- Firefighter
Kind of yellow, covered in soot and dirt-- Experienced Firefighters
Orange-- Special Operations Team Leaders

I wanna know where you can get a purple helmet??? I think my girlfriend would LOVE that!!
Jason, let me know too. Must be someone who makes them................
White- Chief .Ass Chief
Black-Working Firefighters
Yellow-Untrained or New members
Whit with red letters/numbers - LT. thru Chief
Black with yellow letters/numbers - Equipment Operators
Black with white letters/numbers - Firefighters

Who ever carries a medical certification wears a certification sticker on the back on the helmet.

We used to have media that was cleared to be within the fire tape. They wore green hats.
Even worse, our Probie helmets used to be yellow! Now they're black with yellow shields.
I've got a purple helmet joke, but it's entirely inappropriate for this forum! LOL
Blake-Officers and working firefighters
I don't want to go back to the probie days!!!! Although getting thrown in the dump tank after a big summer time fire did feel pretty good :-)
