Thanks for answering my question, now as a follow up was there any other similar programs or was it a one-off?

Members wearing a star of life decal on their helmet indicated that they were certified as NYS EMT's. The job had an EMT program that members of the department attended on a voluntary basis. Approximately 2,000 members were certified via the program.

Equipment / Tools / War Year Helmet Questions
« Last post by Lebby on March 21, 2019, 10:48:37 PM »
1. I've noticed on many helmets for the War Years there is a square white sticker with a blue star of life on it. Was there a guideline for their issue and wear?

2. I've seen other departments like Boston use buttons to screw their fronts on, but not to much in FDNY except perhaps in this Michael Dick photo of Battalion Chief Kleehaus (pictured as Squad 41, Lieutenant) Also, I'm not to familiar with the make and model of his helmet, if anyone knows, please share.)

3. If anyone wants to add something or share their own pictures, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thatís the run down. I believe another box went out with the 44. Was one of the same. 44 replaced 38 as the 10-75 chief.  Might have been where they were
 

  10-4. I was just curious about the Extra-Extra Truck. Thanks.

Thank you. Bronx wasnít coming in. Did Squad 41 become avaible or was 61 special called?

Donít know if Squad 41 became available or not.  Squad had to be assigned on the All Hands so itís one or the other.  If I hear anything Iíll post
