Ever wonder what each color fire helmet represents? 

There is no standard for the color of helmets so it varies from department to department. In the Pemberville-Freedom Fire Department the colors signify the rank and tenure of the firefighters.The PFFD helmet colors signify the following:

  • White – Chief Officers (Fire Chief and Asst. Chiefs)
  • Red – Captains and Lieutenants 
  • Black – Firefighter
  • Yellow- Probationary Firefighter
  • Orange – Cadet




Congratulations to Daniel Lee (Pep) Martin for 50 years (1969-2019) of service. Pep is one of few to reach this great accomplishment. His dedication to the PFFD and Community has been inspiring to all. Thank you for your continued selfless dedication to the PFFD and the community.
