The Oregon State Fire Fighters Council maintains an active legislative program, and is funded through monthly per-capita assessment. The legislative program of the OSFFC deals with issues concerning labor and working families with a focus on Fire Fighters issues. Education and Activism are the primary tools used by the legislative staff to meet the goals of the legislative program and of the OSFFC. We stress involvement in local government as well as state politics. The OSFFC in conjunction with the IAFF, sponsors an annual educational seminar in January to help local affiliates and their members become more involved in government. We work to help ensure safe working conditions and retain reasonable wages, hours and benefits.
The Oregon State Fire Fighters’ Political Action Committee is a specialized part of the OSFFC legislative program. The purpose of the OSFFC PAC is to fund political action and lobbying on issues of importance to Fire Fighters and labor. Funds come from direct donations by members and friends of the OSFFC. Plain and simple the OSFFC PAC supports candidates that support Fire Fighters and opposes Bills and initiatives harmful to the safety and livelihood of Fire Fighters and their families.
