Wildfire Equipment

The BC Wildfire Service uses a range of equipment from high pressure water pumps and ATVs to rock trucks and skidders in support of fire operations. Most equipment is hired prior to and early in the fire season (March-May).

To supply equipment which is listed in the BCWS Equipment Rates below, equipment owners should contact their local fire centre to be registered for “as and when required” work. 

Note: While fire centres will register equipment owners throughout the fire season, most “as and when required” equipment rental agreements are issued between March-May each year.

Specialty equipment owners should submit their equipment to CWSContracts@gov.bc.ca with a description of the equipment being offered and the requested rates.
