The finnish fire Service system is not as compecated as one might tinkk after seeing the file Ilke linked. There are in many cases as many as three same level ranks - one fot state rescur authority (only supervising duties), one for Emergency Service College staff and one for "real" firefighters. The heraldic lion denotes state authority, the red/white shield EMC, the gray shield represents all 27 Brigades or Departments in the country - they all have different coat-of-arms shield - in most cases the county arms.

btv - we have now a new uniformed organisation in Finland - The Emergency Response Center Authority - they are now running most of the Fire/Ambulance/Police/etc Control Rooms or Dispatching Centers. The uniform is dark blue - link: www.112.fi (some pages also in English).
