Portland Firefighters Wear FDNY Shirts for 9/11



Portland Lieutenant Dean from Station 21 proudly shows his FDNY t-shirt

On September 11, bells ring, wreaths are displayed, and moments of silence are observed at fire stations across the United States. This year, all Portland Fire & Rescue (PF&R) firefighters were invited to wear their memorial to the 343 New York City firefighters who perished at the World Trade Center 10 years ago.

On September 9, 10 and 11th, firefighters in the stations switched out their PF&R issued duty t-shirts for personally owned Fire Department New York City logoed T-shirts.

Deputy Chief John Harding summed up the gesture without hesitation. “In a word? Solidarity” he stated.
