East Portland's Newest Fire Station Hosts Open House



On Saturday, October 22nd - with a strong east wind blowing in true East Portland fashion - Portland Fire & Rescue Fire Chiefs John Klum and John Nohr, along with Gresham Fire & Emergency Services Chief Scott Lewis, officially dedicated and opened Rockwood Fire Station 31. 



The new shared Portland/Gresham station was built in just 10 months time and on Saturday welcomed visitors for tours and refreshments. 


Guiseppes, a local Italian restaurant and favorite with firefighters and the community, dropped in with pizzas and cannolis for visitors to enjoy. 


Children who visited the station were exited climb up in the 1949 Mack fire truck that was on display. 


Also on hand was Linda Haworth, a local artist, who is designing and installing a mosaic on the front of the station made from thousands of tiny colored glass tiles with a presentation about the installation.


Station 31 is Portland Fire & Rescue's busiest engine company.  It is appropriate that their slogan "We do more after midnight than you do all day" is prominently displayed on Engine 31.  Portland Fire & Rescue is proud to open new Fire Station 31, which will serve the Portland and Gresham communities for decades to come.
