  • Federal surplus bolsters South Sherman Fire & Rescue's wildfire capability

    This is a photo of humvees acquired by the South Sherman County Fire and Rescue.South Sherman Fire & Rescue responds to wildland and structural fires in the deep canyons and rolling hills of Sherman County, an area susceptible to frequent and challenging wildfires. Recent expansion of the district's jurisdiction posed an additional challenge: South Sherman's fleet was insufficient to attack fires across such a large and diverse landscape, and the budget wouldn't cover the cost to acquire the needed additional equipment.  They turned for help to the Oregon Department of Forestry, which coordinates the distribution of surplus federal equipment to rural fire departments. Surplus equipment on nationwide property inventories was matched to South Sherman’s "want list", and several pieces of needed equipment have now been added to their fleet.
