Rural Metro Fire Department has been providing fire and emergency medical services to the residents of Yuma County since 1969. We have 6 stations strategically located throughout the area to ensure fast, efficient public safety services are to the community from our highly trained employees. 

Rural Metro Fire Department operates on an individual basis with the residents of unincorporated Yuma County. This means fire protection and emergency medical services are not paid for through taxes.  Instead, residents are responsible for establishing fire service directly with Rural Metro Fire Department.
