Avra Valley Fire District News

Currently Happening in Our District

May 17th, 2018

The 2018 Wildland Season has begun.  We are anticipating a severe fire season.  Three of our firefighters recently participated in a prescription burn in Southern Arizona, while another crew reported to the Pinery Fire.

Our firefighters maintain a rigorous training schedule.  Avra Valley Fire District coordinated 36 training classes for the Pima Regional Hazmat Program January-April 2018.  Multiple agencies (8 fire districts, Az State Troopers, Pima County Emergency Management, and poison control) participated in a car crash simulation involving a radioactive medication leak.

Congratulations to Lorrie Palmquist on 5 years of service to the District!

Congratulations to Paramedic Karsten Lippert, Paramedic Richard Roscoe, and Firefighter Paxton Moran on completion of the HazMat Technician training!
