We have 6 velcro tabs attached under the brim on the back of our helmet that have our first initial and last name. For example Bob Smith would be B Smith. In all appratus we have two bigger pieces of velcro that have the piece of appratus on a velcro tab. One is red the other white. When we get in the engine we hand 2 of our velcro tabs to the officer. He puts one name tag on the red and the other on the white. The driver keeps the red one (the drivers name is upside down, meaning he is staying with the engine), the officer (if in command) keeps the white one with him and assigns us to a job. If our officer is not in command then they find the commanding officer and gives the white piece to him and he assigns the job. Sounds really confusing but works very well. OUr county just started this system and I think they are gonna be replacing a lot of these tags because they are attached to our helmets going in with us and they are just plastic velcro tabs. Don't ya think they are gonna burn up?

Well we have a two tag system that has the potential to work really great. People on my department, I'm guilty as any, have gotten very lazy ever since the implementing of the TEAMS system that is integrated into our packs. This system the user punch in a number on each individual unit and allows the commanding officer to view their position on a laptop computer. Its pretty cool cuz it keeps track of you, ambient air temperature around you, how much air you got left, etc. Although I gota start trying to get myself and others to remember to still use the tags

we also use twin tags, each company has two rings the officer delivers one of two to the CP if itsbeen established If working in a combat command op, the incoming companies are supposed to drop one ring in the officers seat ,to be picked up by the aide, whothen takes over the board/assignments etc. we also keep a paper riding list by shift on board as a backup.. Imagine in this day and age adult Career firefighters, paid well, not removing they guy they relieved tags or add they're own.. and they still screw it up..

We have 3 tags on our helmets, and we use one on the engine, one on the status board if we have an incident. The last one is used for the entry if we have to go to a high rise or something larger than a normal sized structure.
