Forestry equipment catalog

Fire departments can purchase equipment from the DNR's Forestry Equipment Research and Development Center catalog. The catalog lists items available and prices (prices subject to change). DNR only sells equipment to Wisconsin government agencies and cooperating fire departments in Wisconsin.

Wisconsin fire departments that have a signed suppression agreement with the DNR may order equipment and personal protective clothing through the center's stockroom in Tomahawk. A signed authorization from the DNR area forestry leader is necessary before a fire department may place an order directly with the Tomahawk stockroom.

The center will not do any special purchasing but fire departments may order any items normally stocked by the center. These items can be picked up or shipped via UPS. However, UPS will not deliver to post office boxes and there will be an extra charge for shipping to residential addresses.
