"Dedicated to the Safety and Protection of the People."
The Wickenburg Fire Department was first organized in 1865. The first constitution was adopted in 1937 in Maricopa County. In 1976, the Wickenburg Volunteer Fire Department, Ltd., was incorporated. In 2007, the Town of Wickenburg converted the volunteer department to a full-time, professional fire service.
The Department is responsible for emergency response throughout the Wickenburg area. Uniquely, Wickenburg Fire is both a department of the Town of Wickenburg and a separate special district, which serves the rural area surrounding the incorporated Town.
