May 14, 2024: OFCA Response Letter for Agencies

We are sharing an important letter from the Oregon Fire Chiefs Association (OFCA) regarding proposed OSHA standards 29 CFR 1910.155 and 156. The letter addresses concerns about the impacts of these standards. Please review the letter and feel free to use or modify it to fit your agency's needs.


OFCA NEW MEMBER SCHOLARSHIP OPPORTUNITY: The OFCA Board of Directors wants to make membership accessible to all of Oregon’s chief officers so they are offering a free one-year Active Member Scholarship to chief officers who have never belonged to the Association. They are especially interested in assisting chief officers who work in small volunteer or combination fire departments where financial limitations may have prevented them from joining the OFCA.
