Truck 2 Graduation Day


On June 22nd, Portland Fire & Rescue (PF&R) held a graduation ceremony for Truck 2 graduates at its Training Academy. This class included nine firefighters who successfully completed PF&R’s Training Academy, worked under the close supervision of officers and firefighters at Station 2, and are now full-fledged firefighters. 

In addition to receiving their badges, the graduating class received their own turnouts and traded in their black helmets (worn by trainees) for yellow helmets (worn by firefighters).  Training Division Chief Scott Fisher delivered the commencement address and acknowledged the fact that passing PF&R’s Training Academy is difficult for both firefighters and their families.  As such, he thanked the graduates for their dedication and commitment, and their family members who supported them throughout the past year.

The ceremony was followed by cake and photos with Chief Fisher. 

Congratulations graduates!
