U.S. Department of Energy Donates Fire Apparatus

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) recently transferred through the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) an Idaho National Laboratory-operated brush fire truck to the fire department of the Shoshone-Bannock Tribes of the Fort Hall Reservation, reports East Idaho News.

The well-maintained, low-mileage 1997 Pierce engine is capable of spraying 250 gallons of water per minute. It has an 800-gallon water tank and a 30-gallon foam tank with a compressed air foam unit.

DOE and the Shoshone-Bannock Tribes have a positive working relationship and agreements in matters of mutual interest, including environmental sustainability, anthropology and cultural resources, and STEM education.
