Fire Personnel Attend & Present at Annual Fire Prevention Workshop


Fire Prevention personnel from Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington converged at the Salishan Lodge in Gleneden Beach, Oregon for the 2011 Pacific Northwest Fire Prevention Training Workshop this week.

Presented by the Pacific Northwest Fire Prevention Cooperatives, the Agencies of Pacific Northwest Coordinating Group, and the Oregon Fire Marshal’s Association, the workshop presented information on fire prevention education, residential fire sprinklers, hazardous materials, developing WebPages and newsletters, public evacuations, unsafe buildings, public relations, and interviewing techniques on-scene of emergency incidents.

Portland Fire & Rescue’s Fire Inspector Specialist Michael Alderman and Division Chief John Nohr were presenters on Wednesday, February 16, 2011 at the training workshop. 

Alderman provided information on ways to efficiently and effectively address the growing program of unsafe buildings. Nohr spoke to the importance of marketing and lobbying for the needs of an organization, helping participants to identify specific techniques in order to promote a positive image for their respective agency.

Portland Fire & Rescue's Fire Marshal, Assistant Fire Marshals, and Fire Inspectors also took part in this training opportunity in order to expand their fire prevention knowledge base.
