These photos were sent in to the Fire Blog this morning by Automotive Trades Supervisor, Mike Bartell. Today, Portland Fire & Rescue vehicle maintenance staff is busy in the appartus bay putting hundreds of studded tires on our emergency response vehicles. This annual fall tradition prepares these vehicles to respond to emergencies in inclement weather. Thanks to Mike and his staff for all the work they do to keep our vehicles safe and ready to serve!
