This reflective emblem incorporates the state emblem with the slogan "Orta Recens Quam Pura Nites" (Just recently, how beautiful you shine).
A yellow and a black stripe is attached to the helmet. The ranking is made by the silver angle on a green background. This ranking is a "Qualified Firefighter".
At the back is a sticker with the inscription "6011 W.LEA". Unfortunately the exact meaning could not be determined.
