Rural Fire Assistance
The Rural Fire Assistance segment of the Division of Wildland Fire assists the rural fire departments of South Dakota in obtaining equipment, supplies, and grant funding needed to provide protection for their communities. This is done through programs provided by agreements with the US Forest Service and the Defense Logistics Agency.
Ordering Fire Equipment and Supplies
Through agreements with the US Forest Service and the Defense Logistics Agency, the South Dakota Division of Wildland Fire is able to purchase fire supplies and equipment off federal contracts for the fire departments throughout South Dakota. This affords the fire departments the opportunity to purchase needed items at a substantial savings.
