Local Troops & Fire Departments Welcomed at Copart Portland North

Copart Portland North had a great Saturday morning on March 4, 2017, as they welcomed 24 airmen and women and members of the Gresham and Tualatin Fire Department for emergency training.

Copart donated four vehicles for the teams to practice life-saving training techniques, including Jaws of Life and metal cutters, used to save victims of car-related collisions and accidents.

GM David Newton, AGM Danny LaMotte and CSR Diego Curiel showed up on their day off to coordinate the event, which included a complimentary lunch for all trainees.

We’re proud of our team at Yard 9, along with our other Copart locations, for providing a safe and friendly environment for local law enforcement, military and fire and rescue teams to train.
