DMFM: Celebrating 30 Years of Growth & Change

Long before the first suburbs sprouted in the North Valley’s open deserts, Daisy Mountain firefighters were battling the occasional blaze. An open house this weekend will celebrate 30 years serving the vastly changed region. The 118-employee district now serves about 55,000 residents across 210 square miles. Bring the kids, check out some fire trucks, and maybe just say “thanks.” Meanwhile, a little reminiscing…

1989 The district formed.
1990 Property acquired for stations in New River and in Desert Hills.
2003 Daisy Mountain Fire assumes protection of Anthem, moving into a temporary station on Gavilan Peak Parkway.
2006 Permanent Fire Station 142 opens on Daisy Mountain Drive.
2017 Daisy Mountain Fire Department changes its name to Daisy Mountain Fire & Medical, since 63 percent of calls are for medical issues and rescues.
2018 Black Canyon City Fire District merges into the district.
