Annexation / Contracts for Services

Per Arizona Revised Statutes 48-814, a fire district may provide or assist in providing emergency fire or emergency medical services outside of its own district boundaries if those services are otherwise unavailable and if those services are provided at the request of any law enforcement agency, fire district, fire department or private person, and may receive reimbursement for the costs of providing the emergency services.  The person receiving the services, or on whose behalf the services are provided, is liable to the fire district for the costs and these costs constitute a debt of that person and may be collected by the fire district. 

Property owners that are not within the District's boundaries can petition to annex their property into the District or can contract for services with the Fire District.  A contract for services provides the same protections and services as being a resident of the District.  Some of these services include, but are not limited to:

  • Fire Suppression
