Wildfire Fire Response

Since Janaury 2018, personnel have responded to several wildland fires.  Even though we've had a small amount of rain, the National Weather Service, for 2018,  has forecasted a warmer and drier spring and summer.  See Tucson's National Weather Link for up to date weather predictions:  With the onset of highter temperatures, slated for June, local agencies are prepared to help out when and where needed.  All fire agencies are asking residents to firewise their homes before a wildfire strikes your neighborhood.  Residents are to use extreme caution when using their bar-b-que grills, so that a spark or hot ember does not ignite dry grass in their yard.

The Tubac Fire District has received smoke detectors with a 10-year life battery and CO2 detectors for community disbursement from a joint grant program with the Rio Rico Fire District.  Installation of the detectors is conducted by District personnel who have been trained through the program.  A home safety survey is also offered along with the installation.  The safety survey is not required, but may be helpful in identifying home safety concerns that may be overlooked.    The crews are not qualified to check hard wired detectors and will only install the battery operated ones adjacent to existing detectors.  A liability form will be required to be signed.  An appointment can be scheduled by calling our main office at 398-2255.
