The DNRC solicits fire contracts for aviation - Amphibious Water Scoopers, Helicopters, Large Air Tankers, and Single Engine Air Tankers - through the State Dept. of Administration State Procurement Bureau's electronic Montana Acquisition and Contracting System (eMACS). Aircraft vendors interested in doing business with the State must complete their registration to receive electronic notifications of upcoming bid opportunities. There is no fee for registration. Vendors may register at: https://spb.mt.gov/Vendor-Resources/index .

Contracting for portable toilets and handwash stations, type 2 IA crews, and off-road rental vehicles is done internally through an informal process. Contact Lindsey Greene, (406)542-4230, lgreene@mt.gov for more information. 

If you have other types of equipment and are interested in contracting for fire, please see this handout, or visit the Northern Rockies Coordinating Group website for more information. You may also contact your local unit or area office to inquire about local needs.
