Federal Excess Property Available to Michigan Fire Departments
Suppressing rural and wildland fires requires specialized, and often costly, equipment. The DNR administers the Federal Excess Personal Property (FEPP) and the Department of Defense-Firefighter Property program (DOD-FFP) to make it possible for local fire departments to get the equipment they need for a fraction of what it would cost otherwise.
More than 400 fire departments throughout Michigan have benefitted from the excess federal property made available by the DNR. Over 800 pieces of equipment valued at more than $19 million have supplemented firefighting units statewide.
