Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) standards are to blame for a freeze in a Pentagon program that provides military equipment to fire departments for fighting wildfires, according to a group of bipartisan senators.
In a letter to Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, 25 senators urge the department to restart the program immediately to help rural communities battle growing wildfires.
The issue: the Department of Defense (DOD) froze two programs that supply communities with trucks, pumps, generators and engine parts.
In all, the excess federal equipment normally provided totals roughly $150 million.
