New Office of the State Fire Marshal patch http://kevindayhoffwestgov-net.blogspot.com/2015/07/new-office-of-state-fire-marshal-patch.html
June 2, 2015
According to a recent release by the Office of the State Fire Marshal:
In 2014 the Office of the State Fire Marshal celebrated its 50th Anniversary and for a little over thirty of those years the OSFM has been recognized and identified by the familiar "blue oval" OSFM patch.
For the 50th Anniversary, Fire Marshal Geraci tasked a small cadre of sworn employees to design a special edition 50th Anniversary patch for employees and "in-house" use only.
After designing and formally introducing the 50th Anniversary patch, Fire Marshal Geraci decided the OSFM should have a newer, fresher and re-branded logo and the work group was again given the honorable task of designing a new OSFM patch.
This patch was designed to be unique in its look as well as to show the OSFM is an agency under the Department of State Police. After numerous meetings and design changes, two (2) designs were submitted to the employees of the OSFM and all employees voted for the final patch.
On April 1, 2015 the new logo was officially adopted for official OSFM use. You may have noticed this new logo on recently sent Notice of Investigations (NOI) and News Releases as well as our website and Facebook pages. I wanted to forward you the new logo in JPEG format should you want to use an OSFM logo on your website or on your printed copies. We are requesting you to use this new logo and to discontinue the older "blue oval".
Additionally, OSFM sworn police employees will soon be issued new badges that again are unique its design, clearly identifiable and can not be ordered on a "build a badge" website. Additional information may follow in a News Release in the future from PIO Bruce Bouch.
