The department was the first state agency created in Oregon. It administers, equips and trains the Oregon Army and Air National Guard. During peacetime and for natural disasters, the department responds to the governor in support of the citizens of Oregon. During wartime, the Oregon Army and Air National Guard can be federalized in support of national missions as directed by the U.S. president. The department administers 39 readiness centers/armories, seven maintenance centers, four training sites, two Army Aviation Support Facilities and two Air National Guard bases. In addition, the department oversees the Oregon Office of Emergency Management and Oregon’s Youth Challenge Program.
