OFMAA Leadership Conference...

The Oregon Fire Medical Administrators Association was founded in the spring of 1982, when several fire service Emergency Medical Service Coordinators came together to discuss issues of mutual concern facing Oregon fire service EMS. Over the next year, the group expanded and formalized the organization as a self standing association. In 1983, OFMAA became a recognized section of the Oregon Fire Chief's Association with a mission to promote EMS within the fire service, assist the OFCA on EMS issues and to provide fire service EMS with a voice to the (at the time) Board of Medical Examiners.

Since 1982 the organization has seen many changes. It has grown in membership, influence and has become a 'point' organization for EMS information, education and networking opportunities. The OFMAA is an active participant in regulation and rule making before the Oregon Health Division and State Legislature.

The dedication and commitment of the EMS professionals who have participated and continue to participate in OFMAA is the reason the organization is alive and well today.

The OFMAA strives to enhance and promote professional standards, innovative programs, and increased communication within the Oregon Fire Service. In addition, OFMAA continues to represent fire service EMS to regulatory agencies, the legislature and the public.
