News Release
New Policy Regarding The Use of Portland Fire & Rescue Stations - 07/19/20

Recently, a story has been circulated that federally contracted law enforcement agents have been using Portland Fire & Rescue stations as staging areas for operations against demonstrators. PF&R would like to make it very clear that these federal agents were not, and will not ever, be allowed to use fire stations for their tactical operations.

To ensure that there is no confusion in regards to our role in providing safety to the residents of the city of Portland, Fire Commissioner Jo Anne Hardesty has directed that no PF&R station will be used by law enforcement of any kind, to include Portland Police, for any tactical operations until further notice.

Historically, Portland Police RRT officers were allowed to stage their personnel at fire stations for deployment. This will no longer be allowed.
