As the communities on Mt Lemmon continue to sprout new residences, businesses and infrastructure, the potential for fires dramatically increases. The Mt Lemmon Fire District utilizes a progressive approach to this increased fire potential through public education, fire prevention and aggressive firefighting operations. Even with educational programs and preplanning, fires can occur. When they do, our fully trained Officers and Firefighters utilize fire engines, water tenders and air support to protect life, property and ultimately extinguish the fire as quickly and safely as possible.
