EUGENE/SPRINGFIELD, Ore. — The Eugene Springfield Fire Department is working on a whole new look. It just released the final version of its logo. Staff members say as the two departments have aligned more services, it became necessary to bring all the employees under one name and this will bring their merger one step closer to completion.
Fire Chief Randall Groves says, “Well, the logos are important, because they speak to our service and having both cities names in that design was very important to us. It is an identity for our firefighters and paramedics and how we do our work.”
To keep costs down, the change won’t be immediate. It will actually be more of a gradual transition. They expect to be fully operating as one department by July 1st.
