Established in 1983 in the aftermath of the 1982 M/V Protector Alpha fire, this association supports shipboard fire training and equipment for land-based firefighters from thirteen (13) agencies in Oregon and Washington.


In 1991, oil spill response and prevention was added to the mission of MFSA. This association coordinates shipboard fire and spill response needs between two states, fourteen cities and seven port districts along 110 miles of shipping channels. The MFSA has become a national model; the Revised Mutual Aid Agreements, signed by all participating fire agencies, enable those agencies to assist each other in the event of a shipboard fire on the lower Columbia and Willamette Rivers.
