Drexel Heights FD Spotlight


Our Dispatch Center Is Hiring!
We are accepting applications for part time telecommunicators for our 9-1-1 Communications Center! DHFD dispatches for multiple agencies and as a partner with the Pima County Wireless Integrated Network, our dispatch center will soon become part of a new state of the art facility serving all county emergency responders. For application information, please check out our employment page and this flyer.


2014 National Telecommunicators Week
April 13-19 is National Telecommunicators Week. On Monday, the Pima County Wireless Integrated Network project held a press conference and the new Pima Emergency Communications & Operations Center (PECOC). DHFD dispatchers were part of a feature story done by the Arizona Daily Star. The Sheriff's Department and DHFD will be having open houses this week for families and friends to come see the dispatchers in action in the new PECOC facility.


2013 Annual Report Released
Drexel Heights FD is proud to release it's 2013 annual report document to our stakeholders. Reports from previous years can be found on The District page. 2013 Annual Report


Fire Is Everyone's Fight™
We must join together to help reduce the number of home fires, and the resulting deaths, injuries and loss of property. We rely on the fire service to fight fires once they occur; however, the prevention of fires is up to all of us ... Fire is Everyone’s Fight™.
 


FREE Booster Seats For Kids
We want to make sure everyone is safe from not only fires, but injuries too! Once a child outgrows a car seat at about age five and 40lbs, a booster seat can help position your child so the lap/shoulder seat belt fits them correctly. DHFD offers FREE booster seats to residents who qualify. Stop by our Admin Center with your child during normal business hours or give us a call for more details! Oh...and did you know that all children should ride buckled up in the back seat until age 12?


FREE Bicycle Helmets For Kids
Did you know that it's an Arizona Law that children wear bicycle helmets when riding their bikes? Stop by our Administration Center for a free bike helmet and fitting for toddlers thru age 17 years.

American Heart Association's "hands-only" CPR is available through our monthly public training sessions. Our trainings include First Aid, CPR and AED in one combined and convenient class. For registration information please contact our Administration Center at (520) 883-4341.  2014 schedule
