The Wildland Division was created to provide a well-qualified and equipped urban interface response team. As well as wildfire response, the crews work closely with property owners within the district reducing hazardous fuels and creating defensible space. The Wildland Division remains fiscally independent from the normal operations budget.
Through our partnership with the Hassayampa Wildland Response Group, the crews are available to respond to multiple jurisdictions within and outside the state of Arizona.
An interesting and helpful website that has come to our attention this season is Riskfactor.com. This site can assist you in identifying the risk projections of fire for the coming season. Enter your information and there is a great deal of data on our area based on current climate conditions. Check it out.
On behalf of the Peeples Valley Fire Department, we would like to express our gratitude to AWIMA for the the fantastic 2022 Wildfire Academy that provided our personnel the opportunity to increase their ability in all areas of wildfire response.
