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.
