About Summit Fire & Medical District


Summit Fire and Medical District has a rich history of working together to achieve the best possible service delivery model to the outlying communities of Flagstaff. That history dates to 1973, when Doney Park Fire District was established as the first predominantly career fire department in rural Flagstaff. Soon after, in 1977, Timberline-Fernwood Fire District, a volunteer staffed fire department, began servicing their community. The two-departments merged into Summit Fire and Medical District in 2001. Now combined, SFMD began providing All-Hazard response to over 10,000 residents of Doney Park, Timberline-Fernwood, Cosnino, and more.

2006 saw Summit Fire and Medical District enter into service of the Fort Valley area, increasing the District to 95 square miles and 12,000 residents. After the retirement of our former Fire Chief, Don Howard, Summit Fire and Medical District entered into a two-year Intergovernmental Agreement (IGA) with the City of Flagstaff to share the services of the Fire Chief. This IGA has been extended for an additional 5 years and we are seeing the departments grow in support of each other.

Summit Fire and Medical District is currently comprised of 34 Line staff working off of three shifts (A, B, and C) on a 48/96 schedule. We staff three stations with a fully equipped engine out of each and a minimum of three firefighters (one of which must be a Paramedic) on each engine. 1 Battalion Chief commands each shift and is stationed out of Station 32. We provide All-Hazard response to the citizens of our District and the many visitors we welcome year round, 24/7, 365.
