District History

For the first two decades, the Emergency Services Committee under the Rio Verde Community Association oversaw the emergency services for the community through Rural Metro Corporation.

In 1993 the Rio Verde Fire District formed and joined together with the Rural Metro Corporation to provide fire and medical emergency services to the Rio Verde area.

On July 1, 2004 the Rio Verde Fire District made the decision to implement a self-sustaining fire department, independent of the contracted services of the Rural Metro Corporation.

The Rio Verde Fire District continues to provide fire and emergency medical. Many our firefighters have been serving the Verdes Communities for more than a decade. The district continues to improve and increase our service levels, while remaining fiscally responsible to our tax payers.
