DoD FFP Success Stories - Washington

"... Helping fire departments and the American Taxpayer!"

The Department of Defense Firefighter Property Program (FFP), sponsored locally by DNR and the U.S. Forest Service, provides small fire districts low-cost access to engine and tender chassis that they can reuse as fire apparatus. The assistance helps improve the state’s ability to fight wildfires while reducing costs to taxpayers. Fire districts receive title to the property upon taking possession; they must agree to put the vehicles in service within a year of receiving title and to assist DNR in protecting Washington’s wildlands. DNR and the U. S. Forest Service also sponsor Volunteer Fire Assistance grants each September with refurbishing FFP chassis into fire apparatus given the highest priority for funding.
