The City of Bend and Deschutes County Rural Fire Protection District #2 have adopted the most current version of the Oregon Fire Code and its subsequent family of Oregon codes. Here are links to these codes and others that pertain to Bend Fire Department
Oregon Fire Code - A read only version of the code for reference (currently the 2014 OFC)
Oregon Codes - building, mechanical, plumbing and other codes that are adopted by Oregon
City of Bend Fire Prevention Code - adoption of the Oregon Fire Code and specific requirements for the City of Bend, includes regulations on open burning
Bend Fire Department requests that all buildings and suites have a rapid entry system for quick access in the event of an emergency. Oregon Fire Code Section 506.1.1 states that an approved lock shall be used for this purpose. Bend Fire Department uses the Knox Box system as the rapid entry system approved for any building within our jurisdiction. This link will take you to the KNOX-BOX® Rapid Entry System webpage to view and order a box for the Bend area. Knox is used in other Central Oregon communities as well but the keys for boxes in Bend are different than those in other cities. Check with the local fire department about their approved rapid entry system requirements and company they use.
Follow these instructions on selecting and ordering your new box. If you have any questions please feel free to contact the Fire Prevention Division at 541-322-6309.
