Whatever It Takes
The Maltese Cross on the Fire Department flag stands for loyalty,
bravery and protection. The cross has been originally used a long time ago by the
Crusades because these battles were fought for a holy cause. The Knights often risked
their own life to rescue each other from fire being used as a weapon by their enemy.
They developed a sense of pride and accomplishment in their ability to fight fires and
care for their wounded. This symbol signifies the heroic duties of the Fire Department today.
In the center of the Maltese Cross is a combination of items that represent
readiness commonly known as the firefighters scramble. The helmet represents safety. The
trumpet represents leadership. The ladder, pick axe and pike pole are the specialized
tools used by firefighters. The red color of the flag stands for the dangers of fire and
the courage needed to battle it.
