Grants to Oregon local fire districts and fire departments for workforce expansion efforts. Funding is intended to assist small- to medium-sized agencies in increasing the number of permanent firefighter positions and fire prevention staff. Local fire agencies may apply for funds to support up to two firefighters and two fire prevention personnel.
This funding will increase local on-duty capacity throughout the next three years; allow agencies to quickly mobilize to fires at the local, regional, and state (conflagration) levels; and better prepare communities to survive wildfires. More on-duty firefighters will help keep fires small before they can impact communities. Additional fire prevention staff will give fire agencies the expertise and knowledge to make their communities safer and reduce risk.
