OPRD seeks to fill two remaining ATV Advisory Committee positions

April 10, 2017

The Oregon Parks and Recreation Department (OPRD) is recruiting volunteers for two vacant positions on the All-Terrain Vehicle Advisory Committee.

Current vacancies include active representatives within the following disciplines:
* Rural Fire Protection District
* Emergency Medical Services Provider

The Oregon Legislature established the All-Terrain Vehicle Advisory Committee in 2010, and it is tasked with the following duties: reviewing accidents and fatalities resulting from ATV recreation, reviewing changes to statutory vehicle classifications for safety considerations, reviewing safety features of all classes of Off-Highway Vehicles (OHVs) and recommending appropriate safety requirements to protect child operators and riders.

The ATV Advisory Committee meets as needed up to four times per year at locations throughout the state to advise OPRD regarding ATV issues relating to safety and vehicle classifications. These positions are not part of the ATV Grant Subcommittee.

Applications will be accepted until 5 pm May 5, 2017. The interest form and application are available through the ATV Committees link within the menu section located online at www.oregonohv.org or by contacting Jeff Trejo at jeff.trejo@oregon.gov or 503-986-0585.
