HOW DO I PROVIDE EQUIPMENT & SERVICES FOR FIRE SUPPRESSION?
The Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is currently requesting price quotes for equipment and services for use on wildfires and other incidents managed by DNR. These agreements are 'Call When Needed' and not a mandatory use contract. DNR will establish a roster of qualified, trained, and available vendors who can provide equipment and personnel upon request by DNR.
Here’s how to obtain a 'Call When Needed' Agreement from DNR
Step 1: Determine and download as a PDF which agreement you will need for your equipment/services. If you have trouble downloading the agreement or would prefer a paper copy mailed to you, please contact Megan Fitzgerald-McGowan at 360-902-1317.
