Every fire department has its own distinctive logo. Often the department puts the logo on its apparatus, social media sites, uniforms, letter head and formal documents. A department’s logo should be distinctive and be displayed and worn with pride.

What we’re looking for:

KCFD1 is looking for a new modern logo and design. The logo should capture the tradition of the fire service and be professional and unique to KCFD1.


This contest is open to anyone who would like to participate including current employees. All logos should include the name of our organization and be fire service oriented. The logo should have enough detail and color as to be placed upon an embroidered patch. If you are interested in helping us design our new logo please send us your design in jpeg form. 72dpi is fine for review.  The winning design must be available in hi-res for reproduction and cannot include any trademarked images. Two–to five-color designs that also look great in b&w are ideal. The winning design will replace our current logo by early 2021.

Send submissions to socialmedia@kcfd1.com with “Logo Submission” as the subject.

Winner of our new logo:

The winner of the selected logo will receive a 1-year Fire-Med subscription (local participants), the new logo in a framed display case, a T-shirt with the logo print, and recognition as the contest winner on KCFD 1’s new website. Winner will be chosen by committee.


This competition will run for 1 month starting November 15 and ending December 15, 2020. The winner will be announced after December 20, 2020.
