    Update: Washington County Woodstove Changeout, Woodsmoke Curtailment Program

    This is an important meeting for installers, dealers and chimney sweeps in Washington County and Hillsboro in particular. Washington County has just about completed the first year of their wood stove changeout.  The next phase of the program will be described as well as the process for installers to take part in the changeout contracts.


    Tim Davis, WA County Department of Health and Human Services

    Time permitting, we will also have a brief update on developments in the 2017 Legislature.

    Who Should Attend

    If you sell in Washington County, this meeting is for you. Anyone selling or servicing wood stoves or providing chimney sweeping services should attend to learn about the issue and understand the options the City and County will take in the future.

    Can't be there? Join us Online!

    There are no excuses for not attending. If don't live in the Portland area, find a computer with a webcam, and join us on Skype. Haven't used Skype? We'll teach you how, and we'll practice a bit before the meeting day. (The additional benefit is that you will start Skyping all your friends and relatives and maybe even your customers!) If you are joining us on Skype, bring your breakfast to the computer; we don't want to eat alone! If you have an I-phone, I-Pad or Mac, Facetime also works and is easier than Skype. If you are going to attend by Skype or Facetime, contact Gail English (360-606-3311 or gailenglish@englishestatewinery.com), and she'll get you started.

    Gas Certification Exam, April 20, 2017

    9:00 am - Noon
    NW Natural, 220 NW 2nd Ave, Portland, OR

    Register by March 31

    Who Should Attend

    Anyone interested in being certified by the National Fireplace Institute should consider ordering the manual and taking the exam. Installers in Washington County should be aware the stove change out program requires NFI certification for installation, so this may be of interest to you. NW Natural will proctor the test. 

    NFI Gas Test Information

    The NFI exam is limited to 2 1/2 hours. As soon as we receive your registration for the test, we will upload your data to NFI and they will send you the NFI Gas Manual. The key to passing the exam is to study the manual! Right before the test, which will be in paper form, we will answer questions about the format of the exam and rules for taking it. The exam will begin approximately 9:30.  

    NFI Gas Manual and Test Prices

    NOTE: We need to make sure people have time to study the manual, so no more registrations will be taken as of Sept 9. The registration including a manual is closed. If you already have a manual and would like to take the TEST ONLY, call OHPBA at 503-585-8254. . 

    Normal prices for the NFI manual and test are $399.00 (member) and $598.50 (non member). Due to a generous offer from NW Natural, we will offer these for HALF PRICE: $199 (members) and $299 (non members). To receive the member rate you must provide your current HPBA member number. Limited Seating: due to space considerations for proctoring the test, registration is limited to 12 people.


    Park in the garage between 2nd and Davis Streets. Allow extra time for parking!
