BOISE—The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Boise District has delivered a surplus wildland fire engine to the New Plymouth Fire Protection District at no cost through the Rural Fire Readiness Program. The program is designed to enhance the capability of local fire districts, volunteer fire departments and rangeland fire protection associations to respond to wildland fires safely and effectively.

“Having the ability to transfer equipment through the Rural Fire Readiness Program is a crucial aspect of supporting our local cooperators,” said BLM Boise District Associate Fire Management Officer Josh Renz. “Local fire districts play a critical role in fighting wildland fires in Idaho. Anytime we can assist a cooperator with equipment or training, it fosters solid and professional working relationships while promoting safe and effective wildland firefighting.”
