Lower the Boom in Effect Once Again

PF&R is attacking the city's illegal fireworks problem with a multi-pronged education and enforcement approach. On Friday, PF&R will be hosting a state-wide press conference about illegal fireworks featuring the state Fire Marshal. This Sunday, the Oregonian will feature a wrap ad covering the issue of illegal fireworks. And next week both PF&R and PPB will be releasing a Public Service Announcement featuring PF&R Chief Erin Janssens and PPB Chief Mike Reese.
