Hazardous Materials Emergency Preparedness Grant

The Hazardous Materials Transportation Safety and Security Reauthorization Act of 2005 authorizes the U.S. Department of Transportation to provide assistance to local, state, and tribal governments through training and planning grants for emergency response. The purpose of this grant program is to increase effectiveness in safely and efficiently handling hazardous materials accidents and incidents, enhance implementation of the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act of 1986, and encourage a comprehensive approach to emergency training and planning by incorporating the unique challenges of responses to transportation situations. 

The FY 2015-16 Hazardous Materials Emergency Preparedness (HMEP) grant application period is now closed. For more information, contact Sue Otjen at 503-934-8227 or sue.otjen@state.or.us.​

Shelter in Place
 
 
 
Schools are required by state law to conduct drills for fire, earthquake, and tsunami where  appropriate.
 
Oregon Emergency Management, Oregon Fire Marshals Association, Oregon School Resource Officers Association, and Special Districts Association of Oregon partnered with Office of State Fire Marshal  (OSFM) to provide schools with information about conducting drills for fire, earthquake, shelter-in-place, and lock down. This information is assembled into a School Resource Guide to Evacuation Planning.
 
The guide is intended to ensure consistency in the messaging about school fire evacuation planning, drills and reporting. OSFM recommends using the Emergency Evacuation Drill Record if the fire department, school district, or local school does not have a standardized form.
