Special License Plates for Fire/Rescue personnel
Does your state have a special license plate available for members of fire departments or EMS agencies??
Iowa has both which can be seen here:
I'm interested to see what other state's plates look like...post 'em here!

Here's California's (from the DMV website):
There's a great website that has a bunch of different state fire/EMS plates at THE PL8MAN'S COMPREHENSIVE GUIDE TO FIREFIGHTER LICENSE PLATES OF THE UNITED STATESChris Gaylord

Thanks for the website...very cool!
And before someone points it out...I did do a search on this, and it did not show the other thread currently in progress about license plates...my apologies for not paying attention.

WV has about a million different plates for fire/EMS...the most common is the "FF" plates that are for any firefighter. Then, you have the "PF" which means professional firefighter, and since that didn't go over very well there is now also a "VF" plate for volunteer firefighters. In addition to those, there is a "CF" plate for certified firefighters...I have no clue what that is all about...maybe for those folks who are ProBoard certified, not sure. Not too many people get the CF or VF plates. Here is the WVDMV website...for some reason VF and CF are not on there...

Pennsylvnia has 121 different specialized license plates, it's insane. The FF one on that website was a little outdated, as you could probably tell from the 12 year old registration stickers. They have two for firefighters, one is the PA Professional Fire Fighters and the other is just a generic Firefighter plate.
Here's some of the generic ones: http://www.plateshack.com/y2k/Pennsy...pa2003fire.jpg
And one for emergency vehicles:

We get smaller plates, about 1/4 the size of regular plates in height, same width. You mount them with the existing screws under your state license plate. They just say "Fire Fighter", "Engineer", "Chief", Ex-Chief" etc.Montgomery Township Vol. Co. #1

By purchasing the Firefighters Memorial License Plate, you can contribute to the Illinois Firefighters Memorial that is located on the grounds of the Illinois State Capitol Complex in Springfield.
The Firefighters Memorial License Plate has a $27 issuance fee, $12 which goes to the Illinois Firefighters Memorial Fund and $15 covers administrative costs of producing the plate. You also must pay the standard $78 registration fee. When renewing this plate, the fee is $17 in addition to the standard renewal fee of $78. The Firefighter's Memorial Fund receives $15 and $2 goes toward administrative costs.IAFF-IACOJ PROUD

PA specialty tags
PA also allows individual depts to make a specialty tag, however they are responsible for manufacture and of course that is done by PA prisoners so there is sort of a monopoly, however the prices aren't too bad. So basically there is an unlimited amount of plates. As for the dead horses, sorry, they don't get a plate yet.Rescue Chief Timothy Hugh Gibson, CFI

Once Ohio gets a handle on how many volunteer firefighters they have, there is a possibility that the Volunteer Firefighter plates will be given gratis to volunteers as an incentive to expand their ranks. How many other states do this and did it make any significant difference in the interest in becoming a volunteer firefighter?Richard Nester
