MVFD in the News
The Mountain Vista Fire District operates under Arizona Revised Statues (ARS) § Title 48, Chapter 5. The District is a special purpose entity funded primarily through secondary assessed value property taxes. It is governed by an elected five-member Board of Directors comprised of a Board Chairman, a Board Clerk, a Board Treasurer and two Directors.
The District was formed on September 9th, 2008 as the result of the merger of three smaller fire districts (La Canada, North Ranch/Linda Vista and Heritage Hills). Since that time, the governing Board of Directors has worked to expand the District in a progressive and responsible manner. Currently the district boundary includes approximately 19 square miles of properties in northern Pima County and is comprised of approximately 38,000 day time residents.
In 2009, the District completed two annexations, the Lambert Lane area and the Suffolk Hills area. These two annexations added approximately five additional square miles to the District response area and a significant amount of commercial property to the District boundaries.
Currently, the District owns and operates two fire stations that are strategically located to provide optimal response to most of the areas of the District. While it is extremely difficult to site fire stations within a jurisdiction’s boundary to accomplish a perfect response time for each and every call, our station locations have allowed us to meet an eight-minute response time goal, from receipt of call to arrival at the call location, over ninety percent of the time.
The District has always had a philosophy of meeting the emergency response needs of the community by providing high quality and cost effective service. We have accomplished this by maintaining one of the lowest tax rates in the State of Arizona for comparable size fire districts.
“Community First” – The Mountain Vista Fire District is dedicated to placing the needs of our community first.
“To be the accepted standard of excellence in the delivery of fire and rescue services.”
The Mountain Vista Fire District is driven by:
Integrity – “We will do the right thing by being honest, trustworthy and reliable”
Partnership – “We will achieve success by working together”
Innovation – “We will offer and adapt to new ideas”
Service – “We will provide the best professional customer service”
