to Oregon Administrative Rule (OAR) 259-009-0010, PAF's are submitted

There are two options for a fire service agency to affiliate a fire service
professional to DPSST: the E-1 and the PAF. The E-1 Form can be used to affiliate a new firefighter to your department if you will require this individual to apply for DPSST fire certifications in the future. This means that the fingerprint process can be completed at the time of submitting an E-1 Form instead of waiting until submission of an Application for Certification. When DPSST receives an E-1, DPSST
staff will verify that the applicant meets the minimum standards for
certification as defined in OAR 259-009-0059 by conducting DPSST’s
fingerprint-based criminal history check. Any criminal convictions discovered
during this check will be handled in accordance with the rules for revocation
and denial found in OAR 259-009-0120 through 259-009-0130.
If a PAF is used to affiliate a
fire service professional to an agency when DPSST certification is not required
at the time of affiliation. No fingerprints or payments are required at the
time of PAF submission. However, if the agency later applies for a
certification for that fire service professional, a completed fingerprint card
and fingerprint fee payment may be required.
The use a PAF or E-1 Form to affiliate new employees is up to each individual fire service agency. Agencies should use the form that works best for their own departments.
