Portland (OR) Firefighters to Soon Don Bulletproof Vests

Portland (OR) firefighters will soon have access to bulletproof vests while on the job, reports oregonlive.com.

The catalyst for the move is a changing landscape and more calls that increase the possibility of danger, the report says. The move is fully supported by the firefighters’ union.

Decisions still up in the air on the matter, according to the report, are when the vests will be worn, how many will be purchased, and when they will be rolled out.
