Collinson Enterprises EMS Rank Insignia



Fran Hildwine, BS, NREMT-P, CCEMT-P | | Tuesday, January 6, 2009

One reason EMS uniforms are often confused with those of police and fire departments is the way we structure officer rank and display uniforminsignia. The new line of EMS Rank Insignia from Collinson Enterprises addresses this issue in a very professional, classy way. With EMS Rank Insignia, the traditional bars, oak leaves, eagles and stars have a small Star of Life added that clearly identifies the wearer as an EMS Lieutenant, EMS Captain, EMS Major, EMS Colonel or EMS General. The insignia is available in silver or gold and small or large sizes to adorn your epaulets or collars.


Ranks: Lt., Capt., Maj., Col., Gen.

Colors: Gold, silver

Sizes: Small, large

Cost: Varies
