GVFD Press Release

GVFD Chief pushes for more annexation progress

Green Valley Fire District's annexation efforts in northern Sahuarita have crossed the halfway mark for the initial phase, but the district's chief wants to see momentum increase to meet targeted deadlines. The Sahuarita Town Council gave GVFD its go-ahead on Jan. 23. In October, the town's subscription-based fire and emergency service provider, Rural Metro, informed them it would discontinue operations in the area. Rural Metro Chief Karl Isselhard has told the Town Council that a lack of subscriptions and increased costs led to the company's decision to leave Sahuarita.

A Snake Bite Rescue

On the morning of November 3rd, I placed a 911 call after being bitten by a rattlesnake in my garage. Your fire squad and ambulance arrived promptly and provided me with efficient and professional attention. I don't know their names or even which firehouse they came from but I wanted them to know how much I appreciate their attention and moral support at a time when I was in need.

Great Job folks! You are what GVFD is truly about.
