The State Fire Marshal shall establish by rule a plan for the effective implementation of a statewide hazardous material emergency response system, which, to the extent practicable, shall be consistent with the emergency response plan adopted under ORS 466.620. The statewide hazardous material emergency response system shall include, but need not be limited to:

(1) Provisions for coordinating the duties and responsibilities of regional hazardous material response teams, including related procedures for 24-hour dispatching and emergency communications;

(2) A schedule of fees for computing the reimbursement for extraordinary response costs incurred by a regional hazardous material response team as authorized by ORS 453.374 to 453.390; and

(3) Provisions for ongoing training programs for local government and state agency employees involved in response to spills or releases of oil and hazardous material. The Department of Public Safety Standards and Training may coordinate its training programs with emergency response training programs offered by local, state and federal agencies, community colleges and institutes of higher education and private industry in order to reach the maximum number of employees, avoid unnecessary duplication and conserve limited training funds.
