On April 29th, Portland Fire & Rescue’s Station 3 participated in the Truck Town Party 2010 at NW 23rd and Savier. Coordinated by a liaison with the local library, Truck Town was wildly popular with little fans of big trucks! This event brought together trucks from Portland Fire & Rescue, the Portland Police Bureau Bomb Squad, Penske truck rental, PGE, American Medical Response (AMR), UPS, big rigs, and more for kids to see and touch up close.
Station 3’s truck and engine alternated their time at the event to insure that emergency response needs continued to be met. Held in a large parking lot, the event included tents, where kids could get hats, stickers, and balloons. Firefighter Segui reports that they had a continuous line of kids waiting to climb through the engine’s cab and find out what it’s like to sit behind the wheel of a real fire engine. Thanks to Station 3’s B-shift truck and engine crews for making the party a big success.
