New Crest For Kingsville Fire Department

A new beginning for the Kingsville Department with a new crest that was designed and developed by Fire & Rescue Personnel.

The department brought the idea of rebranding forward following a meeting where Kingsville Fire & Rescue Personnel expressed a desire to leave the past behind and feel proud to work for the department again.

“The identity of a Fire Service is shown by having their department crest displayed proudly on the shoulder of their uniform and the side of the apparatus they ride,” Fire Chief John Quennell wrote in his report.

A graphic artist assisted with the design, and all team members voted on the crest of their choice.

“The idea of rebranding was met with positivity, and personnel thought it was a great step to keep the Department moving forward,” Quennell said.

The new crest will be paid for using a combination of the Benefits-Uniforms line in the Town’s 2021 budget and a private donation received supporting the endeavour.
