The Rio Rico Fire District (dba as Rio Rico Medical and Fire District/RRMFD)  is a political subdivision of the State of Arizona, legally established in 1976 as  the Rio Rico Volunteer Fire Department.  The department then became a fire district in 1985 with a defined service area and tax  base.  RRFD  is established under ARS§ 48-261. 

Since that time the fire district has grown to three fire stations. including an administration building, and  50 employees.

The RRMFD is governed by a five-member elected board since 2010.  The board is elected to provide financial oversight and guide the policy of the district.  RRMFD has been fortunate to have a very  diverse and vested Fire Board, including years of experience in community improvement and public participation.  RRMFD would like to extend our appreciation to our board for their dedication and commitment to our community.
