Rural Metro Fire Department has been providing fire and emergency medical services to Pima County residents since 1963.

Rural Metro operates on an individual basis with most residents of Catalina Foothills. This means fire protection and emergency medical services are not paid for through taxes and residents are responsible for establishing fire service directly with Rural Metro Fire.

In the Catalina Foothills area, Rural Metro has three primary responding fire stations, along with additional services through public / private agreements with Mountain Vista Fire District. A paramedic engine company is located at each station along with a compliment of resources to provide skilled emergency services to the community. Station 74 is the headquarters for our Hazmat team and the response vehicle to assist other locations in mitigating any such emergency.
