Can not find a description of this USAF Fire Protection patch. This patch has only two bugles. I can find all the other Fire Protection patches with more bugles but not two. Any help is appreciated.

I found two crossed bugles listed as Crew Chief but it was from someone trying to sell one so not a for sure answer.

In the typical fire department sense, two bugles means Captain. A single bugle would be a Lieutenant and three or more bugles would indicate a Chief officer. Variations  are not unknown and it's largely how that particular organization (department) denotes it's hierarchy. The one, two and three are the simplest hierarchy dating back many years. In the modern sense other "steps" like a Battalion Chief and Assistant Chief have been added.
