Portland Fire & Rescue Career Day

May 24 | 8:45 am - 12:00 pm

Dream of a career in saving lives? Come join the action-packed Career Day at Portland Fire & Rescue! Learn what it takes to work at Oregon’s largest fire and emergency services provider. Get a chance to suit up and try Portland Fire & Rescue’s fun physical agility tests. Learn about their extensive public safety services, including emergency medical training.

How to attend:

Step 1: Fill out the winter/spring student interest form ASAP. (Type your email address and cell number carefully so we can reach you!)

Step 2: Have your parent/guardian fill out the winter/spring parent/guardian permission form ASAP. (Your application can’t be considered until this is done.) Students who do this early have much better luck at being accepted.

Step 3: PWA will contact you to let you know if you're accepted or waitlisted, or if the career day is full.

Step 4: Show up and have an amazing time!

Who can attend:

High school students in the Portland metro area are welcome to apply. We prioritize students from our partner school districts whenever space is limited (Gresham-Barlow, North Clackamas, Parkrose Portland Public Schools, Reynolds, Oregon Charter Academy).

PWA Inclusion Statement: We welcome students from all racial backgrounds and ethnicities, citizenship statuses, socioeconomic backgrounds, gender identities and expressions, sexual orientations, religions and abilities.
