DNR located this 1996 Ford F-800 truck in Minot , ND in March, 2007. District 5 Board Chair Eric Patton and Fire Chief Randy Coggan drove the truck back to Grays Harbor . District 5 then contracted DNR to convert the truck into a wildland fire engine. Chief Randy Coggan says, “ We are able to obtain a first rate engine, and save our taxpayers thousand of dollars in costs, thanks to this DNR program.”
