Portland Fire & Rescue’s (PF&R) Administration Office will close at 2:00 p.m. on Friday, December 11, 2009. Why? Because PF&R's Administration will be moving from our temporary location at 111 SW Columbia, 6th Floor back to our permanent location at 55 SW Ash Street – Station 1. During the move, Administration phone lines and email will be temporarily unavailable. Citizens are kindly asked to leave a message or contact 9-1-1 in case of a life-threatening emergency. Administration will reopen at 8:00 a.m. on Monday, December 14, 2009 at 55 SW Ash Street, 3rd Floor.

Portland Fire & Rescue’s Station 1 has undergone an extensive renovation and seismic upgrade. The work was funded by a bond measure and passed by voters to ensure that all of PF&R's fire stations were structurally safe, ensuring that firefighters and equipment could respond during emergencies. The Administration Office will be the first group to move back to Station 1. Construction work will continue on the 1st and 2nd floors, so visits to Station 1 should be limited between December 14th and January 15th, 2010. Once the work is complete, PF&R’s Bureau Headquarters, the Investigations Unit, and Station 1’s crews and apparatus will return.
