Equipment Development

The DNRC Equipment Development Center (EDC) is an integral part of Montana's fire program.  EDC supports DNRC's direct protection and county cooperative fire protection programs with fire suppression equipment.

Under the direct protection program, EDC develops new fire engines with custom pump platforms.  These fire engines are used by the DNRC land offices for fire protection on state and private lands.  For the county cooperative fire protection program, EDC develops pumps, water tenders, and type 3, 4, 5, 6 wildland fire engines. This equipment is owned by the state, but maintained and kept at the counties.

In addition to new equipment, EDC reutilizes equipment obtained from the Forest Service Federal Excess Personal Property (FEPP) program and from the Department of Defense Fire Fighter Program (FFP).  This repurposed equipment supports many rural fire departments, as well as the DNRC's direct protection, aviation, and communication programs.
