About the HERO Campaign

The Oregon Office of Rural Health HERO campaign raises funds to help rural and frontier Emergency Medical Services volunteers pay for training.

If you represent a rural EMS agency that wishes to conduct an in-house training, and perhaps include EMS personnel from surrounding communities, this grant is for you. Funds may also be used to send staff to training that cannot be offered locally. You may apply for funding for any training class or exercise completed within the next 12 months.

*Please note that you must be located in a rural or frontier area and recognized by the Oregon Health Authority EMS & Trauma Systems Program as an organization that participates in Oregon’s 9-1-1 response system.
