Restrictions will remain in effect until forest officials determine that conditions have changed sufficiently to reduce the risk of human-caused wildfire.

2019 ANNUAL DINNER/DANCE BENEFIT
The Crown King Fire District would like to thank its citizens, businesses and visitors for their continuous support over the years. With the Covid-19 pandemic many of our means for fundraising have been put on hold. We are reaching out to you for your help! With our lowered fundraising income this year we are at risk of not being able to keep our doors open here at C.K.F.D.
Approximately 1/3 of the annual operating budget for the Crown King Fire Department comes from fundraising events held each year in the Summer and early Fall. Due to the COVID-19 precautions, we are unable to hold these events this year. So we need to replace a significant percentage of our lost fundraising with this Online Auction. Approximately 1/3 of the annual operating budget for the Crown King Fire Department comes from fundraising events held each year in the Summer and early Fall.
