The Oregon Office of State Fire Marshal (OSFM) annually requests information from the state's local fire agencies. Collection of this information ensures that the OSFM has the most accurate and current contact information for each agency, and allows for the aggregation of data on Oregon's fire service. This type of information is essential when seeking grants. In addition, other organizations and agencies from the local, federal, and international level often seek this aggregated information for the purpose of advancing the role of the fire service.
