Our Daily Operations
Currently deploying normal daily operational staffing of 8 personnel, the District responds to approximately 1600 calls per year. TFD provides service with a Type I engine, an ALS/BLS ambulance, one water tender, and one Type 6 brush truck operating out of each fire station. The District administrative office is located at 2227 E. Frontage Road; this location is also home to TFD Station 1. Station 2 is located at 1360 W. Frontage Road in Rio Rico; Station 3 at 333 Camino Josefina in Rio Rico; and Station 4 at 149 Ruta Camaron in Rio Rico.
With a budget of $3.5M, the District is primarily financed by property taxes assessed within the District, as well as by ambulance transport revenues and wildland contract revenues. The District has always had a philosophy of meeting the emergency response needs of the community by providing high quality and cost effective service. This has been accomplished while maintaining one of the lowest tax rates in the State of Arizona for comparable size fire districts.
