Central Arizona Fire and Medical Authority would like to give our community a huge thank you for a safe and uneventful 4th of July! From our staff and our firefighters thank you for heeding the warnings and helping to ensure the safety of our community. Your efforts not only protected you, your families and your neighbors but also protected our response personnel.
Monsoons are on the way but it will take a lot of rain to get us out of the current drought conditions. Everything is at an all-time dry and just a small spark can start a fire. Please continue to stay aware and adhere to stage 2 fire restrictions.
Please remember that any type of firework is prohibited, and this includes sparklers and novelty fireworks. Smoking is only allowed in vehicles, residential yards and designated smoking areas. Only natural gas and propane barbecues with an on/off knob are allowed; anything that releases an ash or ember is prohibited. It truly is up to you to help us prevent wildfires.
