(Olympia, WA)  --  A recently-passed bill that's now law will allow the Washington Department of Natural Resources to donate older fire engines to rural fire districts, vehicles that it otherwise would have to sell at auction.  Previous policy mandates that DNR can donate equipment and vehicles to local fire districts, but only if the value is under 500-dollars.  Supporters of the new law say it will enable less-wealthy communities that rely mainly on volunteer fire crews to access equipment needed to ramp up their initial fire response.
