- Wildland Fighting -


Due to our District bordering the Apache-Sitgreaves Forest and Fort Apache Indian Reservation Forest all suppression personnel are wildland certified and recertify annually.  We have members that serve on national and local Incident Management Teams at all levels.  Our members have additional urban interface training to better fight wildland fires in our area.  Our crews have served in numerous communities inside of Arizona and other states providing assistance when called upon.   



Pinetop Fire District Fuels Crew helps out on the second part of the

Witcom Burn to help prevent wildland fires south of Elk Springs Draw area.

Below is the map of the Witcom Burn 2 area,



Here are just a few photos of fire crews (USFS & PFD) performing the burning operation,

and safety briefing before the ignition begins,







and as the sun disappears.
