Firefighter Property (FFP) Program

CAL FIRE’s Firefighter Property (FFP) Program is driven to aid and strengthen local, rural, and volunteer fire departments’ ability to meet their fire missions and emergency services efforts through the acquisition of excess federal property.

The Firefighter Property (FFP) program awards excess Department of Defense (DoD) property to CAL FIRE and its local cooperators for use in firefighting and emergency services. Through the FFP program CAL FIRE assists state and local fire and emergency service organizations to acquire the property. CAL FIRE works with the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Forest Service to implement the program. FFP is a competitive but simplified program to acquire excess DoD equipment before it is available to other government agencies through the Federal Excess Personal Property Program (FEPP). In the FFP program, certain property passes ownership after it has been in use for a specified period in contrast to FEPP where property is only on loan.

The FFP program is authorized through a cooperative agreement between CAL FIRE and USDA Forest Service. When CAL FIRE assists a fire department or agency, a separate cooperative agreement is required. The agreement holds the cooperator responsible for federal and state guidelines in the FFP program. To participate as a local cooperative in the FFP program please complete and submit a CAL FIRE FFP Cooperator Application.
