Station 9 Firefighters Deliver Fire & Life Safety Message to Richmond Elementary Students


Tours at Portland Fire & Rescue fire stations provide an excellent fire education opportunity for firefighters to teach important life-saving skills for visitors of all ages. 

Just this morning, 5-year old students and chaperones from Richmond Elementary School visited Portland Fire Station 9 at 1706 SE 39th Avenue.

Lieutenant Shane and Firefighters Zo, Luke, and Peter shared information about the many responsibilities of fire station personnel, and showcased the facility, tools, and equipment.

The firefighters reinforced calling 9-1-1 for emergencies, and Firefighter Peter demonstrated his Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to that the children were able to see what firefighters wear and how they sound so they won’t be frightened and try to hide in the event of a fire.

At the end of the tour, firefighters reviewed key safety messages and provided time for questions and answers.

Station tours provided by Portland Fire & Rescue firefighters are one component of PF&R’s comprehensive public education and public relations program.
