Food Network Celebrity Makes Himself at Home at Station 1

3 Comments

 

On Saturday, December 12, 2009, Portland Fire & Rescue's Station 1 had the privilege of hosting Food Network celebrity, Guy Fieri, and his production crew for lunch. Guy Fieri is the host of the Food Network's hit show "Diners, Drive-ins and Dives".  Station 1's Lieutenant Rich Tyler and Firefighters Mark Held, Rich Chatman, and Monte Schierling (not pictured) cooked a variety of Thai foods in typical firefighter fashion before sitting down to dig in with Fieri.

"It was an honor to have Guy Fieri include Portland Fire & Rescue in his roadshow showcasing the City of Portland," said Fire Chief John Klum.  Fieri, one of the Food Network's most popular chefs, is currently on a nationwide tour celebrating family, food and cooking.

 

Portland Fire & Rescue was selected because of its long held belief in the importance of meal creation in the formation of comradery and brother/sisterhood for firefighters.  At PF&R, firefighters shop, cook and eat all their meals together, which strengthens their connection with each other.  This is especially importance since firefighters depend on each other for their safety, and often times their lives.

We look forward to watching Portland Fire's segment with Guy in February 2010.  Stay tuned to the Fire Blog for upcoming airing dates and information.  A special thank you to our friends at the Food Network for selecting PF&R to participate in the Guy Fieri Roadshow!  Guy, if you're reading, you're welcome to stop by for lunch or dinner at Station 1 anytime!

I'll be sure to watch this. It looks great. Any article that promotes cooking is good. I'm a big fan of healthy eating and health foods.
