In an email sent to the members of the Fire/EMS Department, Fire Chief Bashoor wrote:
"As we move towards ordering of new apparatus and a limited number of sedans/SUVs, I have authorized a change to red county apparatus, with white cabs/stripes. Additionally, most new sedans the county orders will be red and marked.
As part of a limited re-branding of the Department, we have already taken the step of changing the logo wording to "Safety First, Everyone Goes Home", however I am now asking for ideas on new striping and lettering setups, to include the PGFD and physical scotch-lite arrangement.
Please forward any concepts or ideas - hand drawn or computer generated - to Major Hess at Apparatus Maintenance, by December 23."
