Hot dry weather means elevated fire danger throughout #Arizona.We all have a part to play in preventing wildfires - even drivers!

• Don't drag chains (and check that they're NOT dragging before you leave);
• Don’t park in vegetation;
• Don't toss lit ci******es out the vehicle window - carry a half-full bottle or water or a fireproof ashtray in your vehicle.

Let's all work together to prevent wildfires!

(And, check your route before you head out with the AZ 511 and ADOT Alerts apps: https://www.az511.gov/about/mobileapp)

This is what cooperation looks like. 6 agencies acting as one for the public’s interest. We are very fortunate for such a small community to have first responders that literally drop everything to help. From our Volunteers from the 2 Fire Departments that respond from work and home, the off duty Border Patrol agents that stopped to help and everyone else that responded.

Another Red Flag day for parts of #Arizona. As dry conditions persist - fire danger remains high. Red Flag warnings are issued by the National Weather Service when high winds & low relative humidity are forecasted creating a perfect scenario for wildfires to start quickly and spread rapidly. Help us out on days like today - avoid burning or using any type of equipment that may spark a fire. It takes all of us to prevent wildfires. #AZFire #AZForestry

Is your license plate up for renewal? Consider switching to our firefighters training plate. $17.00 a year goes directly to support Arizona Fire School.

Arizona Fire School a so very important to all the small departments in Arizona. Without them trainings would be next to impossible for some departments. Ajo Fire sends 3-4 firefighters each year to this school.
