Never search for Taskbooks again!

After the last OFRN meeting, one request that came up was to add a page on the website to link people to taskbooks from DPSST, NWCG and other agencies. The challenge was to create a design that would be attractive to ther website, but also unique and user friendly. We came up with the idea of using the DPSST certification flow chart and to make clickable icons from that. We are proud to say that the idea worked and the page is now live.

State Benefits for Firefighters

There are many benefits offered to both career and volunteer firefighters in Oregon, but its tough to know which is what and the amounts can vary based on a number of factors. Here is a general spreadsheet of some of the benefits made available to firefighters and who provides these benefits. This information is for example only but was accumulated over time so much of this is still accurate. Click HERE.
