Contracting helps Federal fire managers get things done. The Federal fire organizations contract for supplies, services, and-in some cases-construction and specialized services such as architecture and engineering. From buying Nomex, fusees, driptorch fuel, and meals-ready-to-eat to accessing the largest air tankers and helicopters, contracting is the key to getting the resources needed to fight fires and to manage incidents of other types.
