Portland Fire & Rescue’s Honor Guard was formed to bring honor and respect to PF&R, its members and their families by providing formal ceremonial representation at funeral services for retired, active, and line of duty deaths within PF&R. In addition, the Honor Guard supports other fire and police agency line of duty death funerals at the PF&R’s directive. The Honor Guard also performs duties posting colors at civic and public events such as ceremonies, sporting events, parades and memorials as deemed appropriate by PF&R’s Emergency Operations Division Chief.
