Station 1 Firefighters Thanked for Hospitality with a Soul Food Lunch


February is National Black History Month in the United States. To coincide with this national event, the City Council officially proclaimed February as Black History Month in the City of Portland. The proclamation honors the importance of black leaders through Oregon's history and recognizes the many ways African-Americans have enriched, transformed, and enlivened our community.

On April 22, 2011, Station 1 firefighters opened up their kitchen and welcomed in City of Portland employees who were preparing soul food for the Taste of Soul Luncheon and Marketplace Event.

HR Labor Relations Coordinator Jerrell Gaddis, Emergency Operations Chief Scott Fisher, and HR Cost Analyst Larry Nelson

To thank the firefighters for their assistance and hospitality back in April, Jerrell Gaddis and his team traveled to Station 1 to cook a “thank you” lunch consisting of ribs, collard greens, macaroni and cheese, and red velvet cake. 

Jerrell Gaddis is the City of Portland Bureau of Human Resource’s Labor Relations Coordinator.

Thank much to Jerrell and his team of cooks!  Firefighters noted they are looking forward to the sweet potato pie next year!
