RFP Providing Equipment to Firefighters


The Arkansas Forestry Commission Rural Fire Program (RFP) provided $94,566 in equipment to firefighters at the annual Rural Fire Show event on October 27. A crowd of 558 attended, with firefighters from 141 departments from across Arkansas. Included among equipment items distributed for free to fire crews were monitors, nozzles, spine boards, boots, spill kits, and siren boxes.

“This year’s Fire Show was a great turnout! We had more vendors than ever before, and over 140 fire departments. Our goal is to continue to grow each year, and to express our thanks to volunteer fire departments from across the state for what they do for their communities, and for their continued partnership in wildfire prevention and suppression,” says Kathryn Mahan-Hooten, Rural Fire Program Administrator.

Sponsors, donors, and partners are critical to making the annual Rural Fire Show a successful appreciation event for statewide fire crews. Find a full list here of all who supported the 2017 effort.    MORE
