Portland Fire & Rescue | MAKING HEADLINES

Portland Fire & Rescue (PF&R) is committed to the safety of all citizens living in and traveling through the City of Portland. A major component of providing for that safety is a well-informed public. 

The goal of Portland Fire & Rescue’s Communication Section is to ensure that the community is kept informed in a timely manner about Fire Bureau-related activities, programs, and newsworthy events that impact the community.

PF&R’s Communication Section Office is staffed Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. An on-duty Public Information Officer is available 24-hours a day via the media pager at (503) 940-6003 for urgent matters relating to operational incidents.

For further information about PF&R’s Communications Section, contact (503) 823-3383.
