Class "A" Uniform
A three inch round patch for wear in the temporary patch position on the right pocket is available to holders of any of the six Firecrafter ranks. The Firecrafter and Minisino patches are often worn attached to a leather rounder suspended from the right shirt pocket button.
The Firecrafter shirt is a tan tank top with a five and one quarter inch
Firecrafter chest patch. The shirt is worn over a white t-shirt and with scout
pants, socks, and belt. The shirt is to be worn at Rituals, Firecrafter
meetings, campfires, and any other time when it is appropriate to be recognized
as a Firecrafter. The white t-shirt must not have any printing or colored
ribbing visible. The Minisino shirt is the same as the Firecrafter shirt, but
the tank top is white with a Minisino chest patch and it is worn over a forest
green undershirt. It is to be worn without the green undershirt during the
Minisino ceremony and after 6:00 Saturday evening at the Firecrafter Rituals.
No other scouting recognition is worn with the fire shirts.
Single line white name tags
with red lettering are available to be worn on the fire shirt or the class "A"
uniform. They list the a persons name, the year they became a Firecrafter, and
the year they received their Minisino.
Special large name tags are available to
officers. The tags list the name and position on a colored background. The
color varies with the level (ember, flame, council, etc.) of the office. The
nameplates can be ordered from Mike Manor of Manor Engraving, 410 South Plum
Street, Farmland, Indiana 47340.
Firecrafter belt buckles are available at summer camp and the rituals, while
back patches are available only at the Rituals.
Caps are available for both the West and East Flames. The West Flame hats
are dark blue with a yellow West Flame patch, while the East Flame hats are
yellow with a gray patch. This year the Orion Ember has made blue hats with the red flaming "Firecrafter"
and "Friendship, Leadership, and Service" in yellow on the front.
