About the District
The Duncan Valley Rural Fire District is a political subdivision of the State of Arizona, legally established in 1974 under what is now ARS § 48-261. The fire district was formed by a majority of property owners and registered voters, who petitioned the Greenlee County Board of Supervisors to create a special taxing district for the express purpose of providing fire protection services outside the Duncan town limits.
The District currently operates from 2 stations and maintains a roster of 20 firefighters.
Fiscal management of district operations is provided by an elected three-person board, in conjunction with the fire chief who directs administrative and operational services.
