01/19/13 132 W, 1 I - + 8 - 2 Raleigh Fire Department Badge Numbers

One of the most common-est questions we're asked at the fire museum is do we have a list of badge numbers? That is, numbers corresponding to the people who wore them on their shirts, coats, caps, and helmets. The answer is, alas, no. Ten years of searching hasn't yielded one yet. But occasional pieces of information are found, such as list of addresses and more in a station log book from the 1950s. Maybe someday we'll find a full list. Complicating factors include that the numbers were transferred to newer firefighters, some times. We've also heard that helmet numbers and badge numbers may have been different for some folks, or maybe in later years. As always, still researching this one. Click once or twice to enlarge:
