Safe driving is extremely important since nationally, vehicle accidents are the second leading cause of on-duty death for firefighters.  Safe driving skills are one of the keys to preventing a similar tragedy for the firefighters of Portland Fire & Rescue.

Firefighter Kelly Ekhoff will be receiving a Letter of Commendation at Portland Fire & Rescue’s Award Ceremony in the Spring of 2011 as recognition of his achievement as Safe Driver of the Year 2010!

Portland Fire & Rescue appreciates Firefighter Ekhoff’s dedication to safe driving throughout his career.

Congratulations Firefighter Ekhoff!
