Retired Harbor Pilot takes a Trip Down Memory Lane

26 Comments

It takes defined and considerable skill to navigate, operate, maintain, and pilot each of Portland Fire & Rescue’s (PF&R) four fireboats.  Harbor pilots throughout PF&R’s history have been responsible for not only piloting fireboats but providing general maintenance to engines, pumps, and auxiliary naval and fire fighting equipment.

One of PF&R’s notable Harbor Pilots began his career at PF&R at 56 years young.  After serving close to 32 years as a harbor pilot for Portland Police, Robert Lester became a harbor pilot for PF&R.  He retired in October 1981 after serving nine years at Portland Fire.

Robert Lester will be turning 92 years young on December 3, 2009.  To celebrate this momentous occasion, his family and friends arranged for Robert, his wife Yvonne, family, and friends to take a ride on the Fireboat David Campbell for old time’s sake.  The Fireboat David Campbell is currently docked at Station 6 on NW Front Avenue.

 

On Tuesday, December 1, 2009, wearing a Portland Fire & Rescue jacket, Robert Lester climbed aboard the Fireboat David Campbell for the first time in 25 years.  His son, Tony Lester, noted that this was especially poignant for Robert as he helped design the cabin for the fireboat when the boat was “modernized” in late 1970’s.  As the fireboat was piloted to the Willamette River, the excitement was apparent on Mr. Lester's face.

Portland Fire & Rescue thanks Robert Lester for his service to the Portland community and wishes him many more happy birthdays!

Did You Know?

The Fireboat David Campbell was built in 1927 and is 87'6" long.  It was repowered in the 1970's, and currently has diesel propulsion engines and diesel dedicated pumping engines. The fireboat’s four fire pumps have a total output of 15,000 gallons per minute, the pumping capacity of 10 fire engines, and its main turret alone can flow approximately 7,500 gallons per minute.

I'm Celia by name and I have been diagnosed of genital Herpes for 3years and lived in pain with the knowledge that I wasn't going to be well again' I contacted so many herbal doctors on this issue and wasted a large sum of money and my condition never got better I was determined to get my life back so one day I saw several post about this particular herbalist how he's used natural herbal meds to cure this particular virus. immediately I contacted excel on his webpage address https://Excelherbalcure.com so he prepared the medicine and sent it to me through a delivery company including a tree root which he said was very important and told me how to use it which I chewed and swallowed after drinking the herbal meds for 14days of usage, the Pain, itching, and sores were gone after about 2months, am the happiest woman on earth now. This message is from a woman who has felt the pain of genital herpes virus.

She directed me to Doctor Kabiki and I contact him . I contacted this doctor and told him about my condition and this traditional doctor prepared and ship a product to me and told me to use it for just 3 weeks and after I finish taking the product he told me to go for check up which I did and to my greatest surprise my results were negative, I did the test at three different hospital just to be sure and I was indeed cured from Herpes (HSV).

I still don’t know the right words to express my gratitude to Herbalist Dr. Kham. After being diagnosed with Herpes Virus 2 months ago, I was given so many health prescriptions and advice with no improvement, I totally lost hope, until I found testimonies of Great Dr. Kham online when I was researching on a Blog, Like anybody would be, I was very skeptical about contacting him but I later did and he opened up to me and told me what was involved and he started. the remedies for my health. Thank God, I was cured from Herpes Virus by the herbal medication I received from him. I never thought that Herpes Virus can be cured, From the bottom of my heart I'm truly grateful and I pray you have long life so you can help many more people on earth with your herbal medical support, You can Email him via email dr.khamcaregiver@gmail.com or for easy and fast communication, Here is his Website https://herbalistdrkhamcaregiver.simdif.com/ You can also call or add him on WhatsApp with this mobile number +2348159922297, One thing I love most about Dr. Kham is he is a good man with kind hearted,  He is very polite with his patience, Everything he told me was what he did and his herbal medicine are very affordable

It's hard to find a genuine Herbalist These days , because there are so many Of them flaunting and parading themselves to be Herbal Practitioners. This made me Succumb to the fact that I will never be cured of Herpes Virus 2 , which I have been battling since August 16 2018. I became a loner, Afraid of dying as well. Earlier this Year 2021 i came to find out about numerous testimonies Recommending a Certain Herbalist , Who goes by the name of RAZOR. I ignored them because I never believed in Them. I finally decided to reach out to him when a distant Nephew of mine, Whom i never told or knew i had herpes Virus 2, Got cured From Epilepsy And Sickle cell, I thought at once he might be of help . So I contacted him and I can tell you today that I have been very proud of myself for making the move to contact him, I finally got cured of herpes virus 2 with the Herbal medicine Herbalist Razor Sent to me. After years of Suffering from this virus, I am finally permanently cured. God bless You so Much sir . Contact him on his Email : drrazorherbalhome@gmail.com . You can Write him on Whatsapp/Call him Directly on +234 90 6542 0442..

I already gave up on ever getting cured of HSV2 because I have try many treatment none of them work out for me I have be to different hospital they always tell me same thing there is no cure for herpes when i came across a post about Dr momoh, in the net from a lady called Rebecca I contacted him and he reassured me with his herbal medicine which I took according to the way he instructed, that how i was cured. I doubted at first because I have been to a whole lot of reputable doctors, tried a lot of medicines but none was able to cure me. so I decided to listen to him and he commenced treatment, and under two weeks I was totally free from Herpes.

I had my first outbreak of Herpes virus nearly 2 years ago. Of all the horridness, the pain and itching were unbearable. I literally freaked out as my general physician said that it had no cure. The outbreaks were not that frequent initially, but every time I fall sick, it would resurface. I had so many sores this year that I was desperate to try anything to get rid of them. Three months ago a friend suggested that I try Dr Harry remedy that's helping people get cured from HSV, COUGHING, HIV&AIDS, GENITAL HERPES, SNEEZING, HEPATITIS B, CANCER e.t.c. I quickly ordered the product and started using the remedies. I'm so relieved to say that I've not had even one outbreak for a whole month now. Moreover, I'm feeling great from within. I truly endorse this herbal product Dr Harry rendered to me. So if you are suffering from any deadly disease you can also contact this great man on his
