Does anyone know the History behind the Beaver shield holder?

Posted on June 28, 2010 at 11:15am 1 Comment

I have been trying to find out the history behind the Beaver sheild holder and I can not find any information on it anywhere. Like the origin of it, what its meaning is and when it first used or discovered. Anyone with the knowledge of it write me back I would like to learn more about it.

Columbus is not hiring at this time. But you can sign up for notification ifyou go the columbus fire website and click on recruiting. We are going to have hundreds of F.F's Retiring in the next couple of years and although the city does'nt want to, they will have to hire plenty. Good luck!
