Oregon Tradeswomen extends our most immense gratitude to Delta Fire for sponsoring all our 2020 Social Hours!

Founded in 1987, Delta Fire, Inc. is a local, 2nd generation, family-owned company providing the highest quality fire protection systems and services to customers throughout the Pacific Northwest. Delta Fire, Inc was inspired to support Oregon Tradeswomen, as they offer a Fire Sprinkler Fitter union apprenticeship through Local 669 and are always looking for career-minded individuals to join their team!
