Oregon Safety Assessment Program


About the Program

The Oregon Safety Assessment Program (OrSAP) provides professional resources to local governments to help with the safety evaluation of buildings and infrastructure after a disaster. The goal of the safety assessment program is to perform these safety assessments as quickly as possible. Approved OrSAP personnel consist of professional engineers, architects, and certified building inspectors.

Become a Volunteer

Volunteers are a vital part of the OrSAP program. We are seeking qualified volunteers who want to be certified as a post-disaster safety evaluator and have completed an approved OrSAP training course.

When registration forms are received, credentials and training will be verified and an OrSAP badge will be mailed to the address provided. An approved OrSAP refresher training must be taken every five years.

For any questions, email

- Note: registration is temporarily down for updates. Thanks for your patience.


History and Authority of OrSAP

On October 5, 2018, the Disaster Recovery Reform Act (DRRA) of 2018 was signed into law as part of the Federal Aviation Administration Reauthorization Act of 2018. The goal of the DRRA is to improve the nation's capacity to respond to and recover from catastrophic events.

On August 9, 2019, House Bill 2206 passed, directing the state fire marshal to develop and administer a statewide program to evaluate the condition of buildings after an emergency and determine whether the buildings may be safely occupied.

  • The Office of State Fire Marshal (OSFM) was directed to implement a statewide registry of local program coordinators, certified building evaluators, and approved trainers to conduct safety assessments.
  • The bill allows local governments to enter agreements with private contractors to conduct building occupancy safety inspections following an emergency.
  • Lastly, HB 2206 grants the state fire marshal rulemaking authority to administer and implement provisions of the measure.
