Dedicated and compassionate professionals providing life safety through education, emergency response and community involvement to anyone, anytime.

The Pinetop Fire District consists of full-time and reserve personnel who work hand in hand answering any emergency call that may arise. The firefighters go through extensive training to make sure they are prepared to handle any emergency.


The District has fought many different types of fires that range from someone leaving a pot burning on the stove while cooking, to a full blown structure fire that has taken many hours to control.


Members of the fire district are also cross-trained to fight forest fires due to our district being in the heavily forested Sitgreaves National Forest area of Arizona's White Mountains.




Due to our District bordering the Apache-Sitgreaves Forest and Fort Apache Indian Reservation Forest, all suppression personnel are wildland certified and recertify annually.


We have members that serve on national and local Incident Management Teams at all levels.


Our members have additional urban interface training to better fight wildland fires in our area.


Our crews have served in numerous communities inside of Arizona and other states providing assistance when called upon.


Emergency medical care is a major part of our district.
- In 1987, we started responding to medical calls as first responders.
- In 1989, we started EMS ambulance transport, in which we cover 211 square miles.
- We have responded to numerous incidences outside of our community to assist when the need arises including; MVC’s, wildland fires, and agency assist EMS calls.
- Pinetop Fire responds to approximately 1100 calls per year.
- All suppression personnel are Arizona State Certified EMT (Emergency Medical Technician) or CEP’s (Certified Emergency Paramedic).
