The Fire Board has the ultimate responsibility for the protection of life and property within the District boundaries. It oversees the organization of the fire district and its operations to assure compliance with all ARS provisions and make such recommendations as are necessary for the efficient operation of the fire district. The day-to-day operations of the District are managed by the Fire Chief.
Candidates for office must be registered voters of Coconino County and the fire district. Residents interested in board membership who are not registered to vote in Coconino County will need to switch their registration.
