The Emergency Fire Cost Committee oversees the Oregon Forest Land Protection Fund (OFLPF), established by the Oregon Legislature as an insurance fund for the purpose of equalizing emergency fire suppression costs between the various Oregon Department of Forestry Protection Districts. The emergency funding system is designed to function as an insurance policy whereby all districts contribute (pay premiums) to the fund so that money will be available for any individual district to pay fire suppression costs on emergency fires.
