Notice of Temporary Rulemaking for OAR chapter 333, division 265 - "Temporary Licensure for Wild Land Fire Response"
The State of Oregon is in a critical fire danger situation. Much of the state is now in extreme fire danger and red flag warnings have been issued for hot, dry, windy conditions and thunderstorms. We have already experienced wildfires this season that resulted in evacuations and threatened critical infrastructure and hundreds of structures.
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 rulemaking is effective August 21, 2015 through February 16, 2016.
