PF&R Appoints Newest Emergency Operations Division Chief Duane Bray


Duane Bray is sworn in as a Division Chief

April 12, 2012 -- During a formal swearing-in ceremony at Portland’s City Hall this morning, Portland Fire & Rescue (PF&R) appointed Duane Bray to the position of Emergency Operations Division Chief. 

Fire Marshal Erin Janssens presents Chief Bray with a Division Chief Badge

The ceremony was witnessed by Fire Chief John Klum, Fire Marshal Erin Janssens, Division Chief Mark Schmidt, Deputy Chief John Harding, and other Portland Fire personnel.

On-duty Station 1 personnel witnessed the swearing in and then quickly exited to respond to an emergency incident

Bray will oversee PF&R’s Operations Division with just over 600 employees and a budget of $71 million.  As the Division Chief of Operations, Bray will manage Emergency Response, Emergency Medical Services, Battalion Headquarters, Emergency Management Liaisons, Bureau of Emergency Operations (BOEC) Liaisons, and the Hazardous Materials Program.  Emergency response is PF&R's most critical service to the community and is the primary means by which PF&R saves lives and property for the citizens of Portland.   

Fire Chief John Klum congratulates Chief Bray

Bray was hired as a firefighter in 1982, promoted to the rank of Lieutenant in 1991, and 12 years later became a Captain.  In 2005, he was promoted to the rank of Battalion Chief in Emergency Operations and also served as PF&R’s Safety Control Officer.  In 2011, Bray was appointed Deputy Chief of Emergency Operations where he supervised three battalions and over 40 emergency response companies.

Congratulations to Portland Fire & Rescue’s newest Division Chief Duane Bray on his appointment!
