Chief Klum on Comcast Newsmakers


April 6, 2012 -- John Klum, Portland Fire & Rescue (PF&R) Fire Chief, was invited to speak with Comcast Newsmakers yesterday afternoon about Fire Marshal Erin Janssens being selected as Portland’s next Fire Chief and Lieutenant Aimee Rooney being named Firefighter of the year by her colleagues.  Chief Klum also explained how emergency medical services calls have increased nearly 20 percent since 2002 here in Portland, thereby changing how the Fire Bureau trains and hires new firefighters.

The segment with Chief Klum will be aired at the end of April and the first part of May on CNN Headline News on Comcast Channel 45.
