The Bureau of Land Management Southwest Colorado Fire and Aviation Management Unit transferred 10 two-way radios to the Egnar Volunteer Fire Department in San Miguel County to enhance its wildland firefighting capabilities. The radios were transferred under BLM’s Rural Fire Readiness program, which is designed to provide equipment to local wildland firefighting partners at no cost. “The BLM works closely with local and rural fire departments to suppress wildland fires that threaten communities, property and natural resources,” says Brandon Lewis, BLM fire management officer. “This equipment will improve the Egnar Volunteer Fire Department’s wildfire response capabilities as we work together to fight wildfires in Southwest Colorado.”
