Frequently asked questions:
What is a fire district?
A fire district is a political subdivision of the State, formed by a majority of voters for the protection of persons and property in an area approved by the counties.
How is the fire district governed?
The District is governed by a three member board elected at large by the voters. The Board establishes policy and approves the annual budget.
What services are provided by the District?
CKFD provides fire, emergency medical, hazardous material, and a variety of other services. Our fuels reduction crew works year-round to reduce hazardous fuel loads for wildland fires with the help of groups such as AmeriCorps NCCC. The department also provides free blood pressure checks, hosts an annual flu shot clinic, educates children on fire prevention, supports community Firewise efforts, and manages the local slash pile for brush disposal.
Who pays for the District?
The District is organized under the laws of Arizona as a special district. A majority of its revenue is from grants, as illustrated in the 2017-2018 tenative budget below. This budget reflects a 14% decrease from last years adopted budget. Additional revenues are generated by our annual auction fundraiser and a secondary property tax assessed on all real property in the Fire District.
How do I apply for a burn permit?
See the section on our webpage about burn permits or stop by Station 1.
How do I apply for a position at CKFD?
Applications will be accepted only during posted recruitment periods. Please call the Fire District at (928) 632-7163 for more information or watch the homepage of this website for further information on current job openings. Volunteer applications are accepted year-round.
How do I check my smoke detector?
Each smoke detector has a test button, usually in the center of the detector. Protect your ears, as the alarm will be very loud. Press the test button and hold for a few seconds. If it is working correctly, the alarm will sound and will automatically stop after a few more seconds. The most common problems are low battery and units needing to be cleaned (using compressed air to blow the dust out).
Is my medical information kept private?
How does CKFD determine where to clear properties of fuels?
Our fuels reduction work is grant based, which requires us to clear in areas of contiguous properties. Our goal is to protect the overall community from the worst wildland fire threat (south and southwest), to the northeast.
