Oregon Fire Code

Interested in helping shape the next Oregon Fire Code?   Come Join the Team!

The Oregon Fire Code Committee (OFCC) is excited to kick off the 2022 Oregon Fire Code adoption process, this will be based off the 2021 International Fire Code (IFC).  We are looking for participation from fire service, stakeholder groups and the public.
The Oregon fire code serves as Oregon fire service's manual to protect the public and all residents from the hazards of fire, explosions, or dangerous conditions in buildings and other facilities.

*Competency Recognition Date Extension - Code Amendment Class
