DNR Surplus Engines

From the 2017 Washington State Legislature, RCW 76.04.135(4) authorizes DNR to transfer ownership of its surplus engines to fire districts in wildfire-prone areas within counties that have a median income level below the state average. These engines will help local fire districts be better prepared to fight wildfires in their districts. Taxpayers will benefit too. By transferring these resources to fire districts in fire-prone areas, we can together reduce initial attack response times to wildfire starts, and thereby, reduce the potential for large, costly and catastrophic fires.
See OFM median income data for 2017 to see if your county falls below the state average and is eligible.
Fire districts from eligible counties that are interested in receiving a surplus engine must complete and submit a “Surplus Engine Request Form”. Requests are due to DNR no later than 5:00 pm June 8, 2018.
See 2018 Surplus Engines to view photos and information on the ten engines available this year. Fire districts can also view the engines in person by appointment Monday through Friday from May 14 – June 8 at DNR’s Compound located at 801 88th Avenue SE, Tumwater. To schedule an engine viewing, please contact DNR Equipment Services at 360-902-1219 or 360-902-1380.
Questions regarding the transfer process should be directed to DNR Fire District Assistance at 360-902-1300.

DNR will begin to notify districts of the results as soon as July 1, 2018.

NOTE: All surplus fire engines are offered “AS IS.” DNR makes no warranty of condition or operability. Fire districts are encouraged to complete their own due diligence to determine vehicle condition and operability, including tanks, pumps, and other vehicle accessories.
