Happy Fun Fact Friday! As promised, A fact about Firefighter Helmets. Did you know... For centuries, firefighters have worn helmets to protect them from heat, cinders and falling objects. Although the shape of most of these helmets has changed little over the years, their composition has changed from the traditional leather to metals (including brass, nickel and aluminum) to composite helmets made of lightweight polymers and other plastics. While on the subject of uniforms we should mention that there is no "set in stone" standard for the color of helmets or what rank each color represents. Until the 1980's it was common for all firefighters to have black helmets. Only chiefs had a different color and that was white. Officers would have an emblem, or stripe, on their black helmets. New helmet design gives us a choice of colors. Captains often have red helmets and Chiefs are usually white. A national consensus is emerging but some departments apparently are clinging to their own traditions. Some departments will have a color for lieutenants while others do not. You may find that EMS personnel have a specific color of helmet in some communities while in others they simply reflect the rank. In the western part of the U. S., officers will have red or white helmets while firefighters (the rank) will have yellow. As you go east you will find black as the more common color for firefighters. LA has yellow helmets. NY has black. Dallas has yellow for non-officers while Houston uses black for firefighters. Luckily you will often find a written out rank position or "bugles" on the helmet to give you a clue. Don't forget to join us at the 2013 Fire Muster this weekend!! It will be from 10am-1pm at the Arapahoe Community College.

In Performance Appraisals, Make Context Count

Every organization evaluates the performance of its employees in some way, whether that process is formal or informal, or on a regular cycle or an ad-hoc basis. At a small start-up, feedback is likely to be informal and spontaneous, while larger organizations are likely to have structured systems …
