Portland Fire Celebrates Graduation Day for 8 New Full-Fledged Firefighters


Graduating Class 11-02

May 8, 2012 -- Portland Fire & Rescue (PF&R) Fire Chief John Klum, Fire Marshal Erin Janssens, Training, Safety & EMS Chief Glen Eisner, Deputy Chief Jeff Bancroft, and Battalion Chiefs Mark Kaiel and Rich Stenhouse are pleased to announce the graduation of Firefighter Class 11-02.

This morning, eight firefighter recruits were officially sworn in and presented with PF&R badges in front of family members, friends, PF&R firefighters, and command staff. Fire Chief Klum acknowledged the class’ accomplishments and personally thanked the recruits and their family members for their commitment while urging them to continue in their fire-service education and be safe. 

The road for these young firefighters has been long. Members of Class 11-02 successfully completed an eight-week Training Program and a 16-week Recruit Academy. Class 11-02 then transferred to Station 2, a working fire station in the City of Portland.

Under the supervision of firefighter specialists and training officers, the firefighter recruits spent three months training on Station 2’s engine company, then three months on Station 2’s truck company.  During that time, they learned Emergency Medical Service protocol, practiced challenging scenario based evolutions, and responded on emergency calls in the community.   

The eight successful Firefighter Recruits will now be transferred to stations around the City of Portland where they will spend another eight weeks of independent learning and continuing evaluation.

Portland Fire & Rescue welcomes our newest members and looks forward to helping them build a prosperous future for themselves and their families.

Congratulations to Firefighters Chase, Owen, Tyler, Keith, Erik, Thomas, Timothy and Bradley!
