Incident Management Teams (IMT)

The Oregon Office of State Fire Marshal administers three all-hazard Incident Management Teams made up of members of the structural fire service. The teams mobilize primarily to fire incidents threatening lives and structures, but have also managed a variety of other incidents.

The teams utilize the Incident Command System to provide:

  • Expertise in safety, public information, community issues, operations, planning, logistics, and communications. 
  • Structure, support, and oversight for ongoing emergency operations.
  • Enhanced effective coordination among responding agencies. 
  • Development of a plan of action to aggressively and safely mitigate the incident to which it has been assigned, either through Unified Command or a single incident command structure. 

The most likely way for a team to mobilize is at the request of the Governor through the invocation of the Conflagration Act (ORS 476.510).
