    Yeah. Our post has leather fronts with our post name, post number (790), and last name.
    Here's a picture of my helmet:http://i116.photobucket.com/albums/o...6/P1010043.jpg
    And here's one of just my front (it's not really red like it shows, I just took the picture with a red light): http://i116.photobucket.com/albums/o3/RFxplr326/hel.jpg

          Since I am not a general, I may not be able to answer this question. I am a Captain, but all helmets should have front pieces, aka shields, on them to identify the member from which company their are assigned to.

            Kyle's picture above shows what our normal explorer's helmet fronts look like.


            I'll try to get a pic of one of our Lt's shields to post if I can.

              My junior department's helmet fronts are the same as the senior members except for the color. All seniors (except chief and *** chief) are black. Jrs are red (Jr. chief and *** chief are blue).

                    Yeah its on the front right and rear left of the helmet. It was painted this way for easy identification. Capt. (thats me) gets white shield and paint, Lt's get blue shield and paint. Its for easy id on scenes, at drills, etc.

                    At first I hated it, but it has kinda grown on me.

                        We use the helmets on the far right at my post. Happy little fella. works nicely too when someone drops a spanner (not a fancy left handed one) on your head from 3 stories up.

                            we have shields in pt. beach. the explorers had their own made up, and are green made of cheap cardboard stuff that doesn't hold up well when wet....

                            but juniors have a normal material shield, however it's oragne. regular firefighters have black shields.


                            the other department in town also has yellow shields for officers, red for engineers and white for chiefs. my company has yellow, red and white helmets for our officers, engineers, and chiefs.
