Welcome to the Portland Fire & Rescue (PF&R) Fire Blog! My name is John Klum and I am one of the 750 proud members of PF&R. Thank you for visiting our newest site.
With support and direction from Commissioner Randy Leonard, PF&R has developed the Fire Blog primarily to communicate new ideas and news, provide an informal channel of communication, and get instant feedback from both internal PF&R members and the communities we serve.
We also hope to:
Emphasize PF&R’s Purpose
We want to communicate to the citizens of Portland what we stand for, what we're trying to accomplish, and what’s important to us as a bureau.
We will provide information, resources, and tips to readers both inside and outside of PF&R. We will ask for your feedback and what sort of things you would find valuable from the Fire Blog.
The blog will be used as a workspace to keep each other updated and maintain open dialogue.
The Fire Blog will be a continual work in progress. So, if you have a comment or suggestion, we always welcome your feedback. Thanks again for visiting and supporting Portland Fire & Rescue. Tell a friend. And we hope you enjoy the site as much as we have enjoyed creating it.
John Klum, Fire Chief
