Slavic Christian Academy Students Visit Lents Neighborhood Fire Station



A group of first through eighth grade students from the Slavic Christian Academy visited Portland Fire & Rescue’s Station 11 Friday morning. Lieutenant Dave and Firefighters Vincent, Doug, Chad, Josh and Kevin where up for the challenge and provided the students with a tour of the firehouse and fire engine and answered job-related questions.

Lieutenant Dave gives students a "tool talk"

Students enjoyed seeing the kitchen and eating area, exercise equipment, sleeping quarters, and the day room, but were especially excited to make their way to the apparatus bay where Fire Engine 11 is stored.

Firefighter Vincent shows students the protective clothing wore by firefighters to insulate them from heat


Lieutenant Dave and Firefighter Vincent, Doug, and Chad highlighted commonly used firefighting tools, including the “key to the City” and the pike pole, and gave students the opportunity to check out the inside of the fire engine.

You can locate the nearest hydrant to your property on PortlandMaps.

Type in your service address and follow the tabs for Maps and then Water.

Students then carefully crossed the street under the watchful eye of the firefighters to a live hydrant and watched Lieutenant Dave use a hydrant tool to open the fire hydrant's valve.

Portland Fire & Rescue's Station 11 is located at 5707 SE 92nd. Station 11 serves the Lents neighborhood and provides response coverage to a mix of residential, education, commercial, and light industrial facilities along both sides of Interstate 205 at the southern end of the City of Portland’s boundaries.
