New system helps firefighters know who's who
Members of the Farmington Fire Department are sporting a new look these days -- and a new ranking system, too.
Not too long ago, the fire department bought more than 40 helmets, courtesy of the Fire Relief Association, which approved the $8,000 expenditure. But with those helmets, firefighters also got something they can claim for years, maybe even generations, to come. They got their very own number.
