Members of the Mammoth Volunteer Fire Department worked hard going out in the community and contacting businesses in Tucson and surrounding areas to raise money to provide smoke alarms for people living in the Mammoth Fire District. They received over $2,900 from the following: Pat’s Auto in Tucson, Apache Gold Casino, SaddleBrooke Quilters Club, Discount Tire, Dave Hardin of Hardin Brothers in Catalina, State Farm Insurance Aaron Franco, Oro Valley Home Depot, Southwest Gas, Creative Awards and Sandy from Dollar General in Mammoth. The Mammoth Volunteer Fire Department would like to thank all those businesses whose donations will go towards helping the community and making it safer.

The fire department has purchased 450 smoke detectors which will be made available to residents in the Mammoth Fire District. They will be offered to low income households at no cost. The fire department will install the smoke alarms, train the family in their use and will do regular battery inspections. If you are interested in getting smoke alarms in your home and feel you are qualified, contact the Mammoth Volunteer Fire Department at 520-487-2050.
