Portland Firefighters Ring Bells for the Salvation Army


Portland Fire & Rescue (PF&R) firefighters will be ringing the bell in front of downtown Macy’s department store on December 15, 16, and 17, 2009 beginning at 11:00 am. The effort is part of the Salvation Army's "Everyday Heroes" campaign that both raises money and allows the public to thank the uniformed men and women who keep them safe everyday.

Look for PF&R firefighters dressed in red and black outside of Macy’s department store

and donate to help support those in need who turn to the Salvation Army for food and toys during the holiday season!

Even the wintry weather this morning couldn’t stop firefighters from Portland Fire & Rescue’s Training & Safety from ringing bells, opening doors, and playing and singing holiday carols to inspire passersby to place donations inside red kettles. 




Wednesday, December 16, 2009

Fire inspectors from PF&R's Fire Marshal's Office (FMO) braved the cold and rain Wednesday as they volunteered their time to be bell ringers for the Salvation Army outside of the downtown Macy's department store.



Thursday, December 17, 2009

The celebrity bell ringers for Thursday were firefighters and chief's from Portland Fire & Rescue's Operations Division.  Fire Chief John Klum also was in attendance to support this worthy cause. 



Stay turned to learn the amount PF&R raised in donations over the past three days!
