Welcome to the new website for the Copper Canyon Fire and Medical Authority, the newly minted agency responsible for providing fire suppression, emergency medical service, rescue, hazardous materials response, and fire prevention services to both the Camp Verde and Montezuma Rimrock Fire Districts.

By joint governing board approval, on May 18th 2016, both the Montezuma Rimrock and Camp Verde Fire Boards have agreed to form the Copper Canyon Fire and Medical Authority, effective July 1, 2016. It is expected that this bold action will not only help to preserve vital emergency services to both communities, but also, over time, allow for enhanced services and eventually lower costs (taxes) to the residents.

What is a Fire Authority?  Simply put, it is a contractual agreement between two or more fire agencies to establish a new entity to more efficiently and effectively provide services to the communities previously only supported by their individual fire agency.  Both fire districts remain in place, and pledge their assets, liabilities, and employees to the Authority to provide the service.  This results in economies of scale and better operational practices that reduce costs and lead to enhanced service delivery.

While the staff of Copper Canyon Fire and Medical are excited about this change and to continue to deliver service to the communities, we also recognize the commitment and sacrifices both communities have made over the decades to establish and support their fire districts.  We will honor this commitment by pledging to work diligently on your behalf to deliver the best possible service and care we are physically and economically capable of.

In return, we ask for your patience as we evolve into the Copper Canyon Fire Authority.  It was clearly a momentous decision by both Boards to agree to this change, but there is also a great deal of work to accomplish in order “blend” both organizations together.  Out on the streets, things will visually not change much, other than smiling faces with new uniforms that are operating from existing vehicles with new logos and lettering. We would ask that you please be patient with us as, however, as we work to refine many of our administrative practices and procedures over the coming months as we become “one”.

We will be using this website (with links to the two District’s websites), as well as press releases and social media to keep everyone informed of our changes.  We also look forward to addressing any concerns or comments about how we are doing in providing service to you.
