We’re privileged to work with emergency, fire, and police departments all over Indiana and beyond. I say privileged because, one thing they all have in common is they’re a pleasure to work with. So, it must come with the “territory”. The Plainfield Fire Territory is an example of good people doing good work and as a result working with their team on the fire truck graphics was an excellent experience.
Who is the Plainfield Fire Territory?
“The Plainfield Fire Territory, formerly the Plainfield Fire Department, provides fire protection, emergency medical, hazardous materials response, technical rescue and fire prevention services to the Southeast corner of Hendricks County. The Plainfield Fire Territory includes Guilford Township and the Town of Plainfield. The town includes parts of Guilford, Liberty and Washington townships in Hendricks County. This area has an estimated resident population of over 35,000.
The Plainfield Fire Territory operates from three fire stations and a fire headquarters. Three engine companies, one ladder company, three transporting paramedic units and one command vehicle are staffed twenty-four (24) hours a day. In addition, there is a support truck that pulls the rescue boat and the specially equipped Gator ATV.” — Plainfield Fire Territory About Page
What do you see when you look at the Plainfield Fire Territory photo above? Do you see fire truck graphics on fire trucks? There are four trucks, but what are they? Fire vehicles aren’t limited to fire trucks because there are ladder, pump, and crash trucks as well as rescue, emergency, municipal vehicles, and more.
The materials used on fire truck graphics range from standard adhesive vinyl to reflective all the way to 24 K gold leaf! And not all fire trucks are red. One of our customers has bright blue vehicles, and another has a pink van. So, emergency vehicle design isn’t one size fits all. Here are a few of the typical design options found on fire trucks.
- 911 emblems
- Company slogans
- Vehicle numbers and identification
- Department insignias
- Striping and end points
- Decals of all types
- Various fonts
- Corner and door scrolls
- Crosses such as Maltese
- Fleur de Lis
