Fire Inspector Positions Available

Northwest Fire District was formed in 1983 by residents of the northwest metropolitan Tucson area to ensure that the community received consistent, high-quality emergency services at a reasonable cost. Since its inception, the District has provided increasingly higher levels of fire protection and emergency medical services to a rapidly growing population.

The District currently provides emergency and community services to 110,000 residents and 3,300 commercial occupancies over a 140 square mile area.

After The Fire's Out

Even when a fire has been extinguished and it seems safe for firefighters to take off their respirators, it's possible that dangerous chemicals are still causing lung damage. Researchers from the Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health have partnered with the Northwest Fire Department to better understand these risks and to design new ways to further protect firefighters.
