ABOUT THE NORTHWEST FIRE DISTRICT

The Northwest Fire District is an internationally accredited, award-winning, innovative provider of all-hazards emergency response. We ensure our community receives high-quality and cost-efficient fire, emergency medical, and prevention services. Bordering the City of Tucson and 100 miles south of Phoenix, the Northwest Fire District spans areas of unincorporated Pima County, the majority of the Town of Marana, and touches into areas of the Town of Oro Valley.

The District covers 117,000 residents and 3,500 commercial occupancies over a 140-square mile area. Northwest Fire maintains ten strategically located stations with two new stations slated for construction in the fall of 2018, and two additional stations on the heels of those to keep up with our community’s growth. All of our firefighters are trained as Emergency Medical Technicians or Paramedics. We provide advanced life support (ALS) ambulance transportation for the most injured or ill patients within the District and we’ve been designated by the State of Arizona as a premier EMS Provider. In addition to the full spectrum of fire suppression activity, Northwest Fire manages a Hazardous Material Team and a Technical Rescue Team for swift water, confined space, and rugged terrain rescues. We also provide an expansive schedule of community education programs and support progressive fire prevention codes.

ABOUT OUR COMMUNITY

If you’re not already familiar with our community, we’re eager to tell you about the amazing people and unique landscapes that make up the Northwest Fire District. If you’re already in-the-know, it’s a great reminder of what makes the place we call home so unique, special, and unforgettably Southwest.

Our District borders Arizona’s second largest city, Tucson, and spans into the communities of Marana and Oro Valley. Between these municipalities and the areas of unincorporated Pima County that we protect are a variety of urban, suburban, rural and undeveloped wilderness expanses that make up our jurisdiction. The areas where we work include modern, fast-paced and innovative cityscapes as well as undeveloped landscapes that are steeped in culture and history. Both perspectives present scenic views of populated or open spaces found in the deserts of Arizona. We have an amazing mix of high-level business professionals intertwined with genuine cowboys and cowgirls in dust-covered boots and hats.

In addition to the neighborhoods, schools, and businesses where we keep watch, we also protect vast stretches of I-10, the Union Pacific Railroad, Marana Regional Airport, and hiking trails that wander through the Saguaros and traverse into the mountains. Our residents and visitors are sports enthusiasts, high-end shoppers, stargazers, bird watchers, little league coaches, cuisine coinsurers, homemakers, adventure seekers, college kids, retirees and everything in between. Whatever their “thing” is, they all seem to appreciate our Southwest sunsets that are second to none.

There’s so much more to say about our community, but in short, we believe we have it all. What’s more… there’s so much that we know can only be found right here in our backyard. You can read more about the many areas in and around Northwest Fire District through the links below:
