Lieutenants serve as the on-site commanders in fire stations and are frequently in charge of a company or crew of fire fighters.
Their vital responsibilities include managing the daily operation of fire station personnel, apparatus, and equipment.
The rank of lieutenant is typically marked by the one bugle insignia. The bugle symbol evolved during the Civil War, where commanding fire officers issued orders through the use of large brass devices that resembled a megaphone and were commonly known as bugles.
