 Do you have a maintenance problem and don't know where to find the answer?   Check out the "EVT Tech Talk" mechanics forum. 
Fellow mechanics, on this free website, may already have the answer to your question.  

The Oregon Fire Apparatus & Equipment Mechanics Association is a non-profit educational organization.

The purpose of this organization is to provide complete and comprehensive education and certification on the service and maintenance of emergency apparatus.

OFAEMA works with the Emergency Vehicle Technician Certification Program to assure that all of our preparation classes meet their education standards.  This will assure that the training mechanics receive at the local level is consistant with the training recognized by other states.
