DNR Shares Timber-sale Revenue With 12 Counties

Twelve counties will receive shares of nearly $400,000 to help support public safety efforts of rural and volunteer fire departments, thanks to DNR timber sale revenue. The DNR Division of Forestry allocates 15 percent of timber-sale revenue from state forests to counties in which harvests occur. Each county shares the funds it receives with rural and volunteer fire departments that maintain a cooperative agreement with the DNR’s Fire Control Headquarters. The program is distributing $397,399.09 this year benefiting 94 rural and volunteer fire departments. Fire departments are encouraged to use the funds to improve their wild-land firefighting capability.
