Attention Patch Collectors
In the past, requests for shoulder flashes, etc. have come in to the Port Alberni Fire Department via the website, by regular mail and/or by phone. However, because emergency services agencies world wide must be more security conscious, the Port Alberni Fire Department will no longer send shoulder flashes, etc. simply on request.
Effective May 2004, if the collector is a firefighter, the Chief of his/her department must submit the request on letterhead on the firefighter's behalf. Collectors who are not members of a fire service will have to ask their local fire department to submit a request on their behalf.
