Want to help fight fires and protect communities across Washington?

In advance of fire season, DNR and the U.S. Forest Service are reaching out to local communities to help people understand how to provide fire suppression resources to wildland firefighting efforts.

If you are interested in joining the qualified, trained, and available vendors who help DNR during wildfire season, check out our web page for information on how to become a ‘Call When Needed’ vendor. Needed resources can include items such as water tenders and engines, heavy equipment and operators, chippers, fallers, refrigerated trailers, and more.

Are you new to providing wildfire suppression equipment?

For people who want to learn how to provide resources for wildland fire suppression and what all it entails, there are a few free open houses happening in Eastern Washington. The first one starts tonight in Colville; the others are in Wenatchee on Feb. 1 and Pateros on Feb. 23.
