Station 24 Firefighters Deliver Fire Safety Talk & Engine Tour to Albina Head Start Students


Portland Fire & Rescue (PF&R) Lieutenant Don and Firefighters Ryan, Jesse, and Jason visited Albina Head Start this morning to deliver a fire safety talk and fire engine tour to 16 three-year olds.

Lieutenant Don talked to the young children, pinpointing aspects of fire safety that were the most important for them to learn. He focused on the topics of smoke detectors, fire drills, and what to do if clothing catches on fire.  Firefighter Jesse then donned his full protective firefighting gear and encouraged the young children not to be afraid or hide from firefighters if their home catches fire.

To end the visit, the young children were given a tour of Station 24’s fire engine. Station 24 is located at 4515 N. Maryland and serves the Overlook, Boise, and Humboldt neighborhoods. The apparatus at Station 24 includes Engine 24, Squad 24, and Foam Unit 24.

PF&R urges parents and caregivers to install and maintain working smoke alarms, safely store lighters and matches out of children's reach and sight, and practice a fire escape plan even with small children.  Practicing these fire-safe behaviors and knowing what to do in an emergency can give your family extra seconds to escape during a fire.
