About Us - Shoulder Flashes

2009 - Present
This design, introduced in 2009 and still in use today, prominently features a stylized Maltese cross. This flash also features the word 'rescue' to recognize the fact the Department provides many rescue services in addition to just fighting fires.
2001 - 2009
This design, introduced in 2001, features a fox imposed on a Maltese cross. This design pays homage to the early history of Alberton as the Silver Fox was very important to the early economy of the town and is prominently featured in the Town's crest. This flash also featured the year the Department was established: 1876.
1988 - 2001
When the Fire Department first acquired formal uniform shirts in 1988 they were adorned with the Canadian Association of Fire Chiefs shoulder flash. This was a very popular shoulder flash amongst fire departments as it left a space which allowed the municipality name to be written above the Maltese cross. It remained in use until 2001.
