Grants & Donations
Countyline Fire Department has received grants from the 100 club of AZ for 5 sets of turnouts, the Yuma Regional Medical Center Auxillary for a cardiac monitor/defibrillator/AED and hydraulic extrication equipment (Jaws of Life); and the Happy Valley Fire District in Carlsbad, NM sold Countyline Fire Department a mini pumper truck for one dollar.
- Complete the property acquisition for our fire station.
- Build a truck bay for our vehicles.
- Build a fire station facility on the newly acquired property.
- Raise $30,000.00 for employee wages for a dedicated paramedic/fire fighter (24/7/365 days a year).
Countyline Fire Department is currently working with the Sentinel Elementary School District to obtain an unused 3.8 acre parcel in which to construct a fire station. The location of this property would place an additional fire station in the center of the response area, and would provide rapid access to the Interstate, which is a major source of incidents in the area. The fire department is seeking other sources of income available which would allow it to continue to provide a high level of service to its residents, visitors and travelers passing through the area.
