10 PF&R Firefighter Recruits Sworn In During Ceremony

1 Comment


On Thursday, May 12, 2011, Firefighter Trainee Class 11-01 was joined by incoming Recruits and sworn-in together as the newest sworn Firefighter Recruits at the Portland Fire & Rescue's (PF&R) Training Center located off N.E. 122nd Avenue. 


The new Recruit Class 11-01, made up of the graduated Firefighter Trainees and Firefighter Recruits, will be working together for the next four months earning certifications and learning firefighting skills. At the end of four months, the Portland Firefighters that successfully complete and pass the Firefighter Recruit Academy will continue their probation at Fire Station 2 where they start 24 weeks of shift work (24 hours on/48 hours off) and receive further training while responding to various emergency calls.

Good luck to Jakob, Elliot, James, Evan, Donald, Brendan, Robbie, Sean, Gretchen, and Arrick as they embark in the first part of their challenging journey to become a Portland Firefighter.
