Alabama Distinctive Firefighter Tag

A firefighter who is a resident of Alabama is authorized to obtain a “Firefighter” license plate for their personal vehicle. Under Section 32-6-272, Code of Alabama 1975, requires the Alabama Forestry Commission and the Firefighters’ Personnel Standards and Education Commission to prepare lists of persons eligible for distinctive motor vehicle license plates and to authorize the widow or widower of any firefighter who dies in the line of duty to receive a free license plate.
