What Fire Company Officers Need to Know
Federal Excess Property Program (FEPP) - Under FEPP DCNR Bureau of Forestry acquires excess federal equipment and assigns that equipment to rural fire departments. The Federal Government maintains title to property made available through FEPP and therefore the equipment is considered on loan to the receiving fire department. Only equipment used for fire suppression activities is available through this program. DCNR will license FEPP vehicles for participating fire departments.
Department of Defense (DoD) Firefighter Property Program - DCNR Bureau of Forestry acquires excess military equipment and transfers the equipment to fire departments and emergency service agencies. A certificate to obtain title will be made available to recipients of the equipment once the equipment is converted and ready to be placed in service. Fire departments are responsible for licensing these vehicles.
