Portland Fire & Rescue

9/11 SERVICE PROJECT | 2011

 

Portland Fire & Rescue has chosen to remember the lives of those lost, pay tribute to those who rose in service, and honor those who serve our country today by engaging in service and remembrance on September 11, 2011. 

On September 11th, all 30 Portland Fire Stations will be open to the public.  Community members are welcome to stop by their local Portland Fire Station between 8:00 am and 5:00 pm for a time of reflection and remembrance of the lives lost with our firefighters. Click here for station locations.

In the spirit of service, Portland Fire has selected a project – Visible Address Portland - that will benefit emergency responders and the Portland community.  Visible addressing is vital to emergency responders’ ability to find homes quickly in an emergency.  In case of a fire or medical emergency, seconds count.  Many homes in Portland do not have visible addresses. 

We invite individuals, families, schools, businesses, and organizations to join us in marking this historic day by participating in a service project that will help firefighters save lives.  On September 11th, stop by any Portland Fire Station and pick up a “Visible Address Portland Kit”.  Kits will contain door hangers to hang on front doors of homes canvassed by community members where there is no visible address, encouraging homeowners to take action and make their address visible.

At Portland Fire, we believe that engaging in service and remembrance with the Portland community on the 9/11 10th Anniversary is a productive and respectful way to honor those who died and those who continue to serve.
