    I disagree in that slogans are child's play unless it's some cute made up BS. If it's earned, it will convay pride and ownership. Being on a department with crappy moral or lousy leaders in admin, it may be your saving grace.
    I agree totally. There are also "traditional" reasons. Many Companies in Western Maryland not only have a "Slogan", it is (almost always tastefully done) lettered on the Apparatus in a prominent place. Frostburg VFD's "Our Deeds, Our Rewards" Shaft VFD's "Few Serving Many" and Laurel VFD's "Service For Others" are a few that come to mind, and they go back to the days of Hand Drawn Apparatus. Our "Blitz Crew" at Glenn Dale goes back to the early 60's, when we were involved in some research and development projects using the so-called "Blitz" attack to knock down a large body of Fire Quickly, using an array of "Tools" like a 750 GPM Handline, 3 inch Preconnected Attack Line, Tank to Pump pipes that were at least 5 inches in diameter, and a bunch of other stuff. We, and the other folks involved from the U of M, NBS, and so on, were quite a bit ahead of the times, but a lot of good knowledge came from our "Out of the Box, Envelope Pushing" determination. "Blitz Crew" was earned, not bought, and we're VERY Proud of it. Today, 40some years later, we're still trying new ideas. And we still like the slogan.

    It might not be much of a slogan, but it would be more effective at moving traffic than a Q, a bell, and every flashing light in the department.
    Right after I got my first real piloting job on the river,when I was to drive the boat and not double as a deckhand,some wise axe painted that on a sign and hung it on the stern on the boat I ran out of Paducah Ky.
    Even though we only faced up to fuel barges and people gave me a wide berth anyway,I didn't know about it for a week before someone called me on VHF and asked about if we ran a school.
    My next submission to the contest is"Head's UP!" or maybe "Long Drop".

    We've disagreed on other things but I have to say I'm with you on this one. I was biting my tongue until Bones said something...

    Cute slogans are cute once but they get old fast.

    How about

    "We'd have gotten here sooner but there was an argument about who's turn it was to drive"

    or

    "Backed by two pairs of everything"

    or "Watch that last step"

    And.............

    My All-Time favorite.... "We Do Windows" With proper credit given to the folks who lettered it on the side of their Ladder truck, The Burtonsville (Md) VFD, Montgomery County Co. 15. The truck is a few-year-old Pierce rearmount ladder, nice rig.


    Couple others I've heard of, "Breakin' Glass, Kickin' ***", "Rising to the Challenge", "Roof Dwellers", "We Stick Together".

    If its your first ever tower, let it earn a nickname. The best nicknames are earned over time and regarded with respect for the excellent work of the firefighters who operate the rig.
