Winter Fire School
Winter Fire School
More than 300 Firefighters Attend Weekend Training in Salem (Photo) - 02/16/19

More than 300 career and volunteer firefighters from more than 100 fire agencies (city and tribal fire departments, fire districts, and wildland) throughout the state are at the Oregon Public Safety Academy in Salem this weekend for the State's annual Winter Fire School.

This is the 16th annual Winter Fire School hosted by the Department of Public Safety Standards and Training (DPSST) at the Oregon Public Safety Academy 4190 Aumsville Highway in Salem.

Eleven classes are being offered by the National Fire Academy, DPSST, and the City of Dallas Fire & EMS Department.
Classes range from leadership topics such as Health and Safety Officer, Strategy and Tactics for Initial Company Operations, Decision Making for Initial Company Operations, Leadership in Supervision: Creating Environments for Professional Growth, Perspectives in Thinking, Leadership in Supervision: Frameworks to Success, Wildland Urban Interface Firefighting for Structural Company Officer, and hands-on classes such as Vehicle Extrication and Back to the Basics: Hose and Ladders Instructor Course.

DPSST Director Eriks Gabliks said "DPSST is proud to offer this weekend training event each year.  This event is held in a weekend setting because over 80% of the firefighters in Oregon are volunteers. This two-day event is the largest two-day fire training experience in the Pacific Northwest that is offered free of charge.  The hands-on classes being offered are using training props which DPSST recently received thanks to a FEMA Assistance to Firefighters Grant."

While many people are aware of DPSST's law enforcement training programs, they may not realize that DPSST is also the state fire training organization for Oregon and provides hundreds of training opportunities to firefighters each year at the Academy and at regional locations statewide.

DPSST appreciates the red carpet hospitality local businesses, and the Salem community as a whole, roll-out for the career and volunteer firefighters attending this weekend training opportunity.

DPSST Hosts FEMA All Hazards Incident Commander Training in Salem (Photo) - 02/14/19

Oregon's law enforcement, fire, EMS, and emergency management personnel manage a wide-variety of incidents on a daily basis.  Some of these incidents (sports events, community gatherings, wildfires, floods, etc.) may require several public safety resources/agencies and may draw large audiences that require a dedicated incident management team.

To help develop personnel who may be called upon to manage large incidents, the Oregon Department of Public Safety Standards and Training (DPSST) is hosting a week-long FEMA class, All Hazards Incident Commander, at the City of Salem Fire Department Training Center. 

This course provides local- and state- level emergency responders with a robust understanding of the duties, responsibilities, and capabilities of an effective Incident Commander (IC) on an All-Hazards Incident Management Team (AHIMT). These responsibilities fall into two categories:1) Responding to the incident and command needs of the incident and 2) Effectively fulfilling the position responsibilities of an IC on an All-Hazards ICS IMT

This course is an instructor-led training that supports learning through discussion, lecture, and active participation in multiple exercises that provides a realistic, scenario-driven approach to mastering the skills required of an IC. Exercises, simulations, discussions, and a final exam enable participants to process and apply their new knowledge.

More than a dozen public safety leaders from law enforcement, emergency management, fire and EMS agencies around the state will complete the class tomorrow.

DPSST Director Eriks Gabliks said "DPSST is pleased to offer this week-long training class to prepare men and women from our public safety community that may be called upon to help manage a large incident created by either a natural or man-made event.  Oregon experiences a number of large events each year ranging from wildfires and floods to national sporting events and other gatherings that attract thousands of spectators and participants.  With hundreds of public safety personnel retiring over the next few years we need to ensure we are offering all-hazard/all-risk professional development opportunities to develop those who will be moving into incident commander roles."

Oregon to Deliver First Crisis Intervention Training for 9-1-1 Operators - 02/13/19

Across the nation first responders (law enforcement, fire and EMS) are helping residents in crisis on a daily basis. To assist our state's first responders with training for these types of incidents, Oregon identified the Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) model as an effective and collaborative approach for law enforcement response to persons with a mental health crisis. One component of CIT is a 40-hour training class that includes information on mental health, de-escalation, consumer voices, resources, and other issues that are specific to a jurisdiction.

With staffing and funds provided by the Oregon Legislative Assembly and Oregon Health Authority, the Department of Public Safety and Standards Training (DPSST) in collaboration with Greater Oregon Behavioral Health, Inc. (GOBHI) created Oregon's CIT Center of Excellence (CITCOE). CITCOE serves as a training resource clearinghouse which works with law enforcement and behavioral health agencies across the state to develop, implement and support CIT’s. Currently there are 26 CIT’s in Oregon and several more are being developed.

The more than 900 women and men who work around our state as 9-1-1 communications professionals are an important part of the public safety family and in many ways are the first, first responder.  Their interaction with a person in crisis is different than with other first responders as they can only rely on the information they can gather by talking with a caller over the phone, or via Text to 9-1-1, as opposed to interacting with an individual in person.  This specialized contact does not make the 40-hour CIT training ideal for the public safety telecommunicator.

To help address this need, approximately 18 months ago an ad-hoc work group was formed that brought together interested parties from across Oregon.  This dedicated team spent countless hours to develop a Public Safety Telecommunicator CIT that will be relevant to 9-1-1 professionals in all areas of the state. The CIT training class will be a model that can be used by an individual agency or as a regional 9-1-1 CIT training opportunity in different parts of the state. The pilot Oregon Public Safety Telecommunicator CIT class will be held on February 20-21, 2019.  This class will be offered at DPSST's Oregon Public Safety Academy in Salem. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first statewide class of its type in the nation.

The 9-1-1 CIT work group was co-chaired by Melanie Payne with Portland Bureau of Emergency Communications (BOEC) and Erica Stolhand of Hood River County 9-1-1. Work group members included Sgt. Bill Wright of the Umatilla Police Department, Sgt. Jason Ritter of the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office, Captain Jason Wade of the University of Oregon Police Department, 9-1-1 Supervisor Jennifer Reynolds of Central Lane 9-1-1 (Eugene), Telecommunicator Jeremy Hipes of Clackamas County 9-1-1, Communications Supervisor Karen Primmer of the Umatilla County Sheriff’s Office, 9-1-1 Training Coordinator Karma Fletchall of the Washington County Consolidated Communications Agency (WCCCA), 9-1-1 Training Supervisor Megan Craig  Deschutes County 9-1-1, Emergency Communications Supervisor Mickie Reed Portland BOEC, Officer Tom Hietala of the Bend Police Department, 9-1-1 Training Program Coordinator Tamara Atkinson of DPSST, Training Coordinator Eilene Florey of GOBHI/CITCOE, and Crisis Intervention Training Program Coordinator Linda Maddy of DPSST.

DPSST Director Eriks Gabliks said "public safety agencies around Oregon work in partnership with both public and non-profit organizations in communities around our state to help our residents in crisis.  The program this work group created to train our 9-1-1 professionals to assist people in crisis is greatly appreciated and will help make a difference in our emergency response system."

Oregon Law Enforcement Officer Memorial
Oregon Law Enforcement Officer Memorial
Names of Two Fallen Law Enforcement Officers Approved for Addition to State's Memorial (Photo) - 01/24/19

This morning the Board on Public Safety Standards and Training (BPSST) approved the addition of two fallen Multnomah County Sheriff's Deputies during its quarterly meeting in Salem.  The request to honor these two fallen officers was made at the request of Multnomah County Sheriff Mike Reese who found during historic research at the agency that the submissions were not made at the time these dedicated individuals died.

Background on each Deputy:

On March 5, 1969, Deputy Robert Ray “Bobby” Anderson of the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office was shot by a suspect in his custody.  Deputy Anderson and his partner were transporting a person in crisis to the hospital when the person lunged over the seat in the patrol car and took control of Anderson’s partner’s service weapon.  The suspect shot both deputies and a civilian who was also in the vehicle accompanying the deputies.  Both deputies were hospitalized in critical condition.  Deputy Anderson was paralyzed as a result of the shooting and his health deteriorated until his death on December 1, 1994.  Deputy Anderson was 49 years of age and served with the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office for six years.

On July 25, 1982, Deputy Sheriff Irving Burkett of the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office was shot during a jailbreak attempt from the Rocky Butte Jail. Deputy Burkett was shot by an inmate with a .22 sing-action handgun in the right side of his head. Inmates began the break out at approximately 10:15 pm.  The inmates had a gun inside the jail and through a series of hostages made their way to the control center section of the jail.  Deputy Burkett heroically attempted to alert the rest of the jail that there was an escape in progress and was shot.  Six individuals were sentenced to 25 years in prison after pleading guilty to four felonies. Deputy Burkett was severely and permanently debilitated as a direct result of injuries sustained in the shooting. Deputy Burkett died from his injuries on August 22, 2003.  At the time of the incident Deputy Burkett was 63 years of age and had served with the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office for 14 years.

Overview and Process:

Deputy Burketts’s and Deputy Anderson's names are honored on the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington, D.C, and are both considered a line of duty deaths.  The Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office requested that this same honor be given to both Deputies and that their names be added to the Oregon Fallen Officers Memorial through the historic recognition process.  The historic recognition process allows names of officers who have died in the line of duty to be added by submitting documentation of the death which is carefully evaluated by a committee which makes its recommendation to the Board on Public Safety Standards and Training which makes the final review and renders a decision on addition.

The Board unanimously approved the addition of Deputy Sheriff Irving Lawrence Burkett and Deputy Sheriff Robert “Bobby” Anderson, both of the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office, names to the Oregon Law Enforcement Memorial Wall during the 2019 Law Enforcement Memorial Ceremony on May 7, 2019 at 1 p.m. at the Oregon Public Safety Academy in Salem. 

The State memorial currently honors 183 fallen Oregon law enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty since the 1880s. This includes officers from city, county, state, tribal and federal law enforcement agencies who have served as law enforcement officers, corrections officers, and parole and probation officers.  The recent line of duty death of Ashland Police Officer Malcus Williams, whose name will also be added during the 2019 ceremony, and the addition of Bend Police Sgt. John Lawrence, Multnomah County Sheriff's Deputy Irving Lawrence Burkett and Deputy Robert “Bobby” Anderson, sadly will raise the number of officers honored on the state memorial to 187.

The Oregon Law Enforcement Memorial Fund raised funds to build the state memorial more than 20 years ago and hosts the annual ceremony.  For more information on the Oregon Law Enforcement Memorial Fund and the statewide license plate that is available to honor fallen law enforcement officers and firefighters please visit
