WELCOME TO DETROIT SHIELDS, custom shields for Firefighters and more. DS is owned and operated by 2 Detroit Senior Firefighters. Both Firefighters have been serving DFD for 20 years apiece. DS is dedicated to making a quality custom shield. As Firefighters our helmets and shields say a lot about us. They can tell a story about where a Firefighter has been and what they have done. Other Firefighters can look at a helmet and read it like a open book. There’s some great stories on our helmet shields, and at DS we want to help Firefighters tell those stories. Let DS customize a Real Steel Shield for you. What does your helmet shield say about you?
