About NWFD

Northwest Fire District has served residents and businesses in the northwest Tucson metro area for more than 30 years.  A group of conscientious community members who wanted quality service and protection established the District in the early 80’s. Since the District answered its first call, it has provided increasingly higher levels of fire protection and life safety services to a rapidly growing population. These services are offered from 11 strategically located fire stations situated across the 151 square miles that make up the Northwest Fire District.

Northwest Fire District is committed to caring for the community, and welcomes the opportunity to continue to provide quality services to meet the needs of District residents.

The Details

Northwest Fire District is a nonprofit, community service organization, funded through limited assessed values on property taxes . The Governing Board of the Northwest Fire District provides governance and oversight of the District as it relates to policy, approved programs and services, and appropriated financial resources.

The Board is comprised of five non-partisan members who are elected in even numbered years during the November general election. Board members live within the District and serve four-year terms, which are staggered so at least two members are elected every two years.

Monthly meetings of the Board are held on the fourth Tuesday of each month at 6:00 PM at the Northwest Fire District Administration building at 13535 N Marana Main St Marana, AZ 85653, and are open to the public. More information on Board Meetings is available here.

Northwest Fire District provides a wide range of dedicated services to its residential and commercial property owners. In addition to fire protection, multiple Paramedic-staffed units located throughout the District provide advanced life treatment and transport within minutes.

Northwest Fire District continues to be a leader in adopting new fire suppression techniques, firefighter safety equipment and training, as well as the adoption of progressive fire prevention. In addition, outreach programs and business inspections help prevent injury and fires in our rapidly growing community.

A District-wide fire safety program for elementary students teaches children the skills they need to protect themselves and their families if faced with a life safety situation. Safety lessons include instruction in fire and burn prevention, 911, electrical safety, and hazard recognition.
