GALLERY: Assignment Boards Around the Firehouse

Over the past couple years, our crew’s have built several firehouse assignment boards that now are now used in three of our firehouses across the Model City. A few of these are dry-erase boards, and one of them is a more traditional chalk board. While this is a newer concept that not all the crews have “bought” into quite yet, it’s something that I make every effort to fill out in the morning as we begin the shift. Various departments across the country use the assignment boards to display their riding assignments, equipment updates, training schedules, and motivational phrases.

From the simplest design to the most complex design, these boards help firefighters display the PRIDE they have in their job. Several of these were submitted via Facebook and found throughout the internet/travels.
