What helmet colors does your department use? Do you have any "reserved" colors for officers?

In my department;
firefighters wear red
lieutenants wear black
captains wear yellow
chiefs wear white
Although I'm a captain (the only one right now), I wear a red leather with a yellow front. Sorry, but I just never could get used to that bright yellow plastic thing.
Be safe, have fun!
