About the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) Wildfire Equipment Program.
The program is available to all Department of Forestry and Fire Management (DFFM) Cooperators who have a current Intergovernmental Agreement (IGA).
The catalog items aren’t stocked in our facility but are ordered and in most cases shipped direct from DLA Supply Depots.
Equipment Program FAQ
Who can order from this program?
All DFFM Cooperators who have a current Intergovernmental Agreement.
Why order from this program?
While not trying to compete with the private sector fire equipment providers, the prices are generally lower. Also, the equipment is part of a National Fire Equipment System (NFES) which means if you damage or destroy a DLA acquired item, it can replaced on an incident where a Supply Unit has been set up and stocked.
Do the prices change from what is in the current catalog?
Yes but not often. As prices change the order form price list is updated and posted to the website. Check the date of your order form against the date on the website. Remember there is a 10% handling charge your order. This covers the admin cost of having the program available in Arizona.
Does the Personal Protective Equipment meet NFPA 1977 Standards?
Yes. Shirts, Pants, gloves, helmets, shrouds, fire shelters all meet the NFPA Standard.
What if I accidently order the wrong size or wrong item? Can I return it?
Possibly. If the item has to be returned to DLA there is a 25% re-stocking charge. If it’s a commonly ordered item, like shirts and pants, we’ll put it our stock and give you a credit on your total order.
Can I order direct from GSA Advantage instead of going through DFFM?
In most cases Fire departments and other entities can order direct but you will need to apply for an account and most likely need a credit card to complete your purchases. There are a few items that are available on both DLA & GSA websites like garbage bags, batteries, fiber & duct tape.

As part of a comprehensive Supply Transformation initiative, General Services Administration (GSA) is collaborating with the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) to transfer the Wildland Fire program to DLA.
Wildland Fire Equipment is now purchased through DLA
