Emergency Mobilizations

We coordinate fire service resource mobilization throughout Oregon. The Oregon Fire Service Mobilization Plan is an all-hazard-based plan used to mobilize fire resources to any incident beyond local fire service capabilities necessary to protect life, property, and the environment.


Oregon Fire Service Mobilization Plan

The Oregon Mobilization Plan establishes operating procedures for the most practical use of state resources during all-hazard emergencies beyond the capabilities of local resources. The plan assumes fire departments and districts have mutual aid agreements to respond to local emergencies.

Objectives of this plan are:

  • To provide organizational structure and operating guidelines for the expeditious mobilization and direction of Oregon fire service forces;
  • To promote effective communication among agencies during the preparation for, progress of, and demobilization from a fire suppression operation or other emergency response activity;
  • To effectively cooperate and coordinate the efforts of various participating agencies through the use of a common command structure and terminology;
  • To ensure prompt, accurate, and equitable apportionment of fiscal responsibility for fire suppression or other emergency response activity;
  • To provide an OSFM Incident Management Team for effective support to local agencies and fire defense districts during major operations.
