Firefighters in Oregon knock on doors for safety

title

By Lisa Braxton

firefighters in Portland, Oregon, conduct home visits in a pilot program launched this week. According to the Portland Tribune, Portland Fire and Rescue crews will conduct home safety inspections for residents requesting them.

Firefighters will fan out in neighborhoods and post door hangers, inviting residents to call the bureau to make appointments for firefighters to return later to do an inspection. Safety tips will be discussed at that time.

In a second pilot program, crews will teach weekly safety, health, and fitness lessons in after-school programs.
