DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO BE A PORTLAND FIREFIGHTER?
Firefighting is only the beginning. Portland firefighters serve the community in many ways including fighting fires, providing emergency medical services, responding to hazardous materials spills, performing on specialty response teams, providing education to the public, investigating fires and enforcing code.  Professional firefighters work as a team to protect life and property during all types of emergencies. You must be in excellent physical condition to meet the demands of the job. Firefighters work quickly, while handling heavy equipment for long periods of time and wearing special protective gear in hot and hazardous environments. If you have a strong desire to help others and be a part of a growing and diverse professional organization, then begin your professional firefighting and emergency medical services career with Portland Fire & Rescue.
