How about directing someone to the old thread that was mentioned or whatever...?!

    On tactics and stuff,I tend to agree with you because not everyone was online the last time we discussed a given subject.It should be discussed again,especially if someone has a new technique or found an old one and wants to claim it.
    On the subject at hand,I was on a small enough volunteer department that we knew who everyone was and while the officers,assistant Chief and Chief all had their ranks on their lids,we really didn't see a need to let outsiders like reporters know who was what.
    It used to be that the Chief and all officers wore white hats but then for some reason,Chief and Assistant Chief are the only ones wearing white lids now.
    All officers and qualified firefighters wear red helmets,while the rookies and Explorers wear blue helmets so no one gives them a job beyond their training or legal ability.

    We use black helmets for non-officers, yellow for LT, red for capt and white for chief

    Shields are colored depending on the type of company to which you belong (truck, squad, engine), except all officers are white

    Why? No idea...
