The Emergency Medical Services and Trauma Systems Program develops and regulates systems for quality emergency medical care in Oregon. This ensures that EMS Providers are fully trained, that emergency medical vehicles are properly equipped, and emergency medical systems are functioning efficiently and effectively.


Wild Land Fire Response Temporary License

The Oregon Department of Forestry Incident Management Teams, along with National Interagency Teams are currently deployed in Oregon. Regional compacts are also being utilized for the deployment of specific wild land fire resources to Oregon. New and existing fire threats elevate the need for immediate access to state resources including firefighting helicopters. This threat is not likely to recede in the near future.

The OHA has received a request to expedite limited license reciprocity for out of state EMS providers to assist with emergency medical needs of the staff on the fire response teams. We anticipate receiving additional requests for this EMS license recognition.

This information may also be found on the EMS Rules and Statutes page.
