OB Fire Rescue shirt logoThe design for the T-shirt commemorating the centennial of the first Ocean Beach fire station is now made public.

Todd Barry talked to OB Rag writer Matthew Wood earlier this month about how the shirt’s logo will commemorate the house’s very first fire truck. He and other OB fire and rescue guys designed it. As Matt wrote:

OB history buffs may recall the original fire station opened in August of 1915 on Newport Avenue. It moved from there to its current location in 1946.

 The tab for the shirts is being picked up by Hodad’s, as general manager Jeremy Diem offered to take care of the cost of the 100 or so shirts, saying it was a no-brainer to pick up the tab.

Here is more of what Matt Wood wrote:

Barry hopes it will be just the beginning of the celebration for the firefighters and the No. 15 Firehouse’s golden anniversary.

“It’s a really cool piece of history,” he said. “We’re proud to be here for 100 years. Not many companies have that type of lineage.”

He said the crews are hoping to have an open house later this year to show the community what the fire station at Voltaire and Ebers is all about.

The shirts will definitely be on sale to OBceans – and watch this space for details – or go by the OB Firestation and ask the guys.

Is this the same font used by the hells angels or the old boston red sox?

Trademark issues..?
