On Friday morning, 02/22/19, the Howard County Volunteer Fire Department announced that they had been accepted as a grant recipient of the Firefighter Property Program, also referred to as FFP.


According to the U.S. Forest Service, this program is one of the Department of Defense's (DoD) special programs where firefighters can get excess DoD property to be used for firefighting and emergency services. This program is managed by the Forest Service with cooperation of the state forestry agencies.


Thanks to the grant, the HCVFD will receive a Stewart Stevenson M1078 2.5 ton military truck. The grant also comes with $20,000 for a 500-gallon skid unit.


Howard County Volunteer Fire Chief Mitchell Hooper advised that the truck will be sent to Steele Fire Apparatus to be painted and outfitted. Chief Hooper advised that the truch would be very useful for high water rescues in the area. 


The HCVFD is expected to receive the truck within 60 to 90 days.
