The Arizona City Fire District was formed in June of 1963 by the community of Arizona City and its citizens concerned about having fire protection. The Fire District was formed under a two member Board of an Elected Fire Chief and an elected Secretary/Treasurer. Arizona City is located 3.5 miles south of the I-10 and I-8 interchange on Sunland Gin Road. Arizona City is an unincorporated community in Pinal County. The District serves a population of 10,475 people per the 2010 U.S. Census Bureau.
The District protects 5.5 square miles of area. The District has been classified as a Volunteer Department, but in July of 2014 we became a 24/7 fire department with 2 people on at all times. In July of 2015, daily minimum staffing was increased to 4 members.
The District has a 3 fire rating that was received in 2014 by the Insurance Service Office (ISO). The ISO rating determines the cost of fire insurance premiums that are paid by homeowners in the District. The District receives the majority of funding from the taxes of assessed value of homes and property in the Arizona City Fire District.
Presently there are 29 members on the Arizona City Fire Department. Beginning January of 2016, 9 of these members went to a full-time schedule. The Department performs fire protection and Emergency Medical Service (EMS). The department is comprised of Certified Emergency Paramedics (CEP) and Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT). All our Firefighters are Firefighter I &II certified.
