The staff at the returns warehouse cleans, refurbishes, and repairs fire equipment returned from incidents in the Great Basin.
About 75 to 80 percent of equipment sent out is returned and credited back to the incident.
Incidents must return ordered supplies within 60 days after a fire is officially contained to avoid the supplies being charged to the fire.
The staff at the Returns Warehouse builds 52 different kits (both Radio and GBK) containing all items necessary to provide for mission efficiencies.
Cleaning, refurbishing, and reusing fire equipment provides significant cost savings to taxpayers.
