Not all "Machos" are men
Aug 19, 2014

This is Rose. She is lugging not only her own air tank, but another firefighter's, plus his "turnouts" (Coat, etc.) while picking up after a 2-alarm fire.
Her name is appropriate since Portland is the Rose City. We have other names for her, like "Rose
City Rose" and "A Rose among the Thorns".
This photo was taken a few years ago when she was a firefighter. Now she is a Lieutenant, in charge of a fire company (Engine, Ladder, Rescue, etc.). She is one of about 50 lady firefighters in Portland.

Here she is in her dress uniform.
