OrSAP is pleased that you are interested in participating in this program as an evaluator. This role is essential in the first days after a destructive incident to evaluate the safety of potentially damaged structures. Please be sure to regularly check and update your information on this page as it is what we use to contact you in the event of an incident. Finally, the skills you possess will be useful for the recovery of the community you are assisting. We look forward to working with you in this program.
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.
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 approved measure directed the Office of State Fire Marshal (OSFM) to implement a statewide registry of local program coordinators, certified building evaluators, and approved trainers to conduct such 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.
