Portland Station 18 Firefighters To Show Support at Emergency Preparedness and Safety Event in Hubbard


In honor of National Preparedness Month, the City of Hubbard and the Hubbard Fire District will host the second annual family-friendly Emergency Preparedness and Safety Event this Saturday, August 6, 2011 from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm at Pacific Hwy. 99E & "J" Street in Hubbard, Oregon.

At the event, citizens will be provided with information to help learn how to best prepare their families, businesses, and communities for a potential disaster. The fair will include a Life Flight helicopter landing, appearances by search and rescue teams, and a variety of activities for children and adults.

Firefighters from Portland Fire & Rescue’s (PF&R) Station 18 will show their support at the community event by showcasing the Heavy Rescue 18 and explaining the types of calls and activities that the apparatus would respond on.

Heavy Rescue 18 is currently housed at PF&R Fire Station 18 in SW Portland. Heavy Rescue 18 is 38 feet long and 11 feet high, weighing 52,825 pounds. The apparatus is essentially a giant toolbox on wheels; they are primarily designed for technical rescue situations such as vehicle extrications following car accidents, confined space rescues, rope rescues, swift water rescues, or building collapses.

Other representatives from a multitude of agencies will be in attendance. Learn more at See you there!
