    For the first time, our department is going to issue ID cards to the firefighters. Of couse, I have to design them. What type of information do you have on yours?

    Picture, firefighter name, department name, perhaps the department insignia, what else?


    Thanks!

    If you can keep them from any other data, I would do so. Your list is all we have on ours. With the slight possibility of being lost then found by someone with less than honorable intentions, there is less chance that you will be the victim of identity theft-all they have is a name with no other info to go on.

    Call me paranoid, but in this day and age, I call it cautious.

    Good enough! I'll go with what I had listed.

    I agree the information should be limited. Just enough to get the Glock discount!:thumbsup:

    As for EMS, our department does not provide EMS service, except for those of us who are first responder- or EMT-qualified. The medical side of the house is a separate entity.

    I'll have an ID card through them as well.:upeyes:

    In addition to name, department name, whether EMS or not...

    Ours have "In case of emergency contact:" with a name and phone number on the back.

    We are using the FireTrax system and ours have all sorts of stuff embedded in a barcode. The basics on the front though it Department, Picture, Rank, Name, Department ID Number, and they used to have an expiration date. On the back we put some of the specialties (hazmat, dive, tech etc.) so that the scene commander would know if he had one available. We used a two tag system and you would pass your id to command and then ops would get the second tag.
