Insignia shown for Battalion Chief is that for Assistant Chief, who are the fire officers that command divisions.

There is no such rank as Divisional Chief. The insignia shown is that for Battalion Chief.

Actually, if you look carefully at the photographs on that webpage you can see that the Deputy Chiefs and both of the two Chief Deputies (a somewhat confusing set of titles...!) can ALL be seen to be wearing the "four-bugle" insignia on their coat lapels and caps, along with a single row of oak leaves.

The stars on the shirt collars (which I suspect are gold, not silver, in line with all the other officer insignia) are simply a way of marking the two Chief Deputies as being senior to the other Deputy Chiefs, all of whom wear the normal four-bugle insignia on their collars.

The Chief wears FIVE-bugle insignia on his cap, lapels and collars and has TWO rows of oak leaves.

Hope that helps! smilies-01
