9/11 Service Project: Visible Address

Portland Fire & Rescue has chosen to remember the lives of those lost, pay tribute to those who rose in service, and honor those who serve our country today by engaging in service and remembrance on September 11, 2011. 

In the spirit of service, Portland Fire has selected a project – Visible Address Portland - that will benefit emergency responders and the Portland community.  Visible addressing is vital to emergency responders’ ability to find homes quickly in an emergency.  In case of a fire or medical emergency, seconds count.  Many homes in Portland do not have visible addresses. 

At Portland Fire, we believe that engaging in service and remembrance with the Portland community on the 9/11 10th Anniversary is a productive and respectful way to honor those who died and those who continue to serve.  This service project can be continued throughout the year as a way to remember.

Available on this website are visible address doorhangers in English and Spanish that you can download and print to place on doors in your neighborhood where your neighbors address is not visible to emergency responders.
