I am fairly new to Lawrence and "not getting" the symbol on fire and EMT trucks. I know the white cross part, but not the left-hand gray side.

In 2007, to mark the 10th anniversary of a merger between the Douglas County Ambulance Service and the Lawrence Fire Department, a new logo was adopted. According to the Lawrence-Douglas County Fire and Medical Department, the "Star of Life" is the symbol for EMS and is joined with the phoenix rising out of the ashes.
