Beaumont Fire Service is proud to reveal our crest!
The crest was created by a committee of members from within the department and approved by the Fire Service administration team. This crest has a modern design that pays tribute to the history of Beaumont, the department, as well as the fire service as a whole.
A closer look at the meaning of the crest:
- The insignia is in the shape of a stylized shield, which is a reference to the shield carried by the Christian Patron Saint of Firefighting, St. Florian.
- Beaumont is the community in which we are proud to be based.
- The colour red signifies fire, and yellow the traditional colour of turnout gear worn by firefighters.
- White signifies water, the main tool of our trade, and the dark navy blue of the background is the traditional colour of fire service uniforms.
- In recognition of our French heritage, “Service d'incendie" means "Fire Service" and is proudly displayed, along with "est. 1975", denoting the establishment of Beaumont Fire Service.
- The maple leaf in the center is recognized as the national symbol of Canada, with the stylized BFS letters in the center standing for "Beaumont Fire Service."
- At the bottom, the shield of Alberta represents the natural resources and beauty of the varied Alberta landscape: the Rocky Mountains and their foothills, the grass prairies, and the cultivated wheat fields. St. George's Cross is an allusion to the arms of the Hudson's Bay Company, which once controlled what is now Alberta.
