Welcome to Countyline Fire Department (Arizona)

We are a team of organized volunteers who provide emergency services to the Northeastern corner of Yuma County and Western Central Maricopa County, Arizona. Dedicated to saving lives and property as a result of fires, medical emergencies, and other disasters. We proudly serve our community.

We have a roster of 100% volunteer men and women with no paid staff who dedicate their time to attending monthly training and responding to emergency incidents when they arise. We have no tax base or special tax and operate solely on donations, fundraising efforts, subscriptions, and grant programs.

As Chief of the Countyline Fire Department, I would like to welcome you to our website and say “thank you” for taking the time out of your busy schedule to visit us on the web.

The Countyline Fire Department was established only in 2014. Our dedicated team of eight (8) volunteers are CPR and First Aid trained and receive in-house fire and rescue training, and are proud of the quality of service we provide to the residents, visitors and those persons passing through our fire district. Our personnel constantly train to improve their skills so they may provide the best fire and medical services possible.

We strive to successfully address the many tasks our citizens rely upon us to provide, and that success can be attributed to our personnel. As our members work under stressful conditions, and still maintain their personal lives with family, friends and work; they continue to provide the best lifesaving services available due to their continuous training and dedication, which is comparable to any department in our area.

Our department’s excellent service would not be possible without the full support and cooperation of the people within our district. This support enables the Countyline Fire Department to continue providing the emergency services that ensure the safety and well-being of you, the people we serve.

Brian’s Fire Apparatus Repair worked on this beast for 8 hours in the sun, (112 degrees). The pump transmission was stuck in pump, Brian was able to free it up and manually shift it into road and wire a new ground cable to the starter. This beast fired right up after a bit of cranking. On the downside, the entire diesel fuel return line seeped and needs to be replaced. That’s 40 feet worth of return line for you statistic nuts. So we have to return another day to finish the job.

Brian will have to replace all the packing and rebuild the pump shift cylinder before it can pump water. I have to do some minor plumbing repairs and the tank will be water tight so we can shuttle water with it.
