Station 341 Crest

Every now in then we come across a real gem. We had the honour of creating some custom decals for them of this wall graphic. Our friend, firefighter David R. Smith, added a detailed description of the meaning behind the station crest below.

In the words of firefighter David R. Smith:

The orange flames spell the word "YORK" to represent the old City of York. The yellow flames are the date our hall was founded "1922".The number 1 on the helmet was the station number when the hall was founded in 1922. The number "341" is the current Toronto Station number assigned when we amalgamated. The oak leafs on both sides of our station number represent the area of York we serve "Oakwood". Rescue & Aerial our the 2 trucks that run out of the station. The red bar is an old firefighting tool that was designed by a York firefighter  many years ago and was referred as the "York Bar". The crest on the wall is 4'+4' the gloves and bar are real.
