Station 22 Celebrates Alongside the Community

0 Comments

Firefighters from Portland Fire & Rescue’s Station 22 participated last Saturday in one of Portland's oldest community traditions, the 48th Annual St. John’s Parade. The family friendly, neighborhood festivities began at 11:00 am with an opening ceremony presented by Roosevelt High School students.  The parade began shortly after, winding from Burr Avenue, to Lombard Street, to New York Avenue, and ending at the St. Johns Community Center on Central Street.

Station 22’s firefighters proudly exhibited the fire engine and truck, waving at the community along the parade route.

The Annual St. John’s Parade is the first official event of the Rose Festival and is the third largest in the City of Portland.  It usually draws close to 2,000 entrants from Vancouver to Salem. 

Station 22, serving the Cathedral Park, St. Johns, and Linnton neighborhood associations, is located at 7205 North Alta Street.  The Station was built in 1954 and retrofitted in 2001.  The fire apparatus housed at Station 22 includes a truck, engine, brush unit, utility vehicle, ATVs, and rescue boat.
