Community Right to Know Act Program
The Oregon Community Right to Know and Protection Act (ORS 453.307-414) requires Oregon employers to report their hazardous substances to OSFM, including where they are stored, and the hazards associated with them. OSFM's Community Right to Know (CR2K) Program tracks and maintains these records. Information is then provided to emergency planners, first responders, health professionals, and the public so that measures can be taken to protect the citizens of Oregon, their property, and the environment from the risks associated with these substances.
The Risk Management Department is responsible for managing compliance with the Oregon Community Right to Know and Protection Act for all district facilities and submits an annual report to the Oregon State Fire Marshall in the first quarter of each calendar year.
