Station 21 A-Shift Celebrates Alongside PF&R's Newest Harbor Pilot


During lunch, fellow firefighters at Station 21 celebrated the promotion of Portland Fire & Rescue's (PF&R) newest Harbor Pilot Bob with a cake and well wishes -- read about his promotion ceremony here.

Harbor Pilots here at PF&R are responsible for navigating, operating, and maintaining the bureau's fireboats. Work also involves fire prevention, suppression, and inspection duties, as well as piloting harbor patrol crafts. Piloting duties require considerable independent judgment and skill in maneuvering the boat in fog, rain, snow, rapidly changing river and water conditions, and at the scene of a fire. When not piloting or operating a boat, incumbents perform deck hand and general fire fighting duties as well as general maintenance duties to engines, pumps, and auxiliary naval and fire fighting equipment.

Congratulations to Harbor Pilot Bob from

Station 21 A-shift crew

Captain Darrell and Firefighters Bruce and Kelly!!!
