On Saturday, Aug. 16, the Pinal Rural Fire Rescue had a barbecue at their fire station in Mammoth. A small group of people attended. The barbecue was held to introduce the new acting Fire Chief Ron Prast. Ron is from Mesa and will be taking over in September when Chief Bud Paine and his wife Deanna leave for Idaho. Acting Chief Prast said he sees a need to help the community with fire and paramedic services.

Prast is a paramedic. He said that he wants to “be more community oriented and create partnerships with the other fire departments in the area”. “I want to mend bridges and build relationships with the other fire departments,” said Prast. “A fire department is a reflection of the community. We want to provide services that the people haven’t had before. It’s all about saving lives and property.”
