BLM SEEKS EMERGENCY EQUIPMENT RENTAL AGREEMENTS

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) may need to rent additional equipment for fire suppression and support activities during the upcoming wildland fire season. To help locate such equipment quickly during a fire emergency, the BLM Elko Field Office is soliciting Emergency Equipment Rental Agreements for a variety of equipment.

The deadline for signing the emergency agreements is May 25, 2007. These agreements are accepted by other federal and state agencies with similar emergency fire needs.

BLM needs all sorts of equipment such as gray water trucks, potable water tenders, fuel tenders, dozers and transports, refrigeration trailers, mechanic service trucks, sedans, pickups, stake side trucks, road graders, excavators, skidders, pack string, mobile offices, helibase operations trailers, all terrain vehicles (ATV’s), and weed washing units. All equipment will be subject to a safety inspection before actual use, and all contractors and operators will receive a comprehensive safety briefing before equipment is used in an actual fire line situation.

Individuals or companies interested in renting to the BLM on a call-when-needed basis and subject to equipment availability should contact Jacky Anderson at the BLM Elko Field Office, 3900 East Idaho Street, Elko, NV 89801, or call (775) 753-0200.
