The Arizona State Forestry Division provides fire protection to 22 million acres of state and private lands, and responds to other
lands under cooperative agreement. AZSF dispatches resources statewide for wildland fire and also sends state and local resources to wildfires in other States through federal agreements. AZSF has ready access to over 3,000 local fire fighting vehicles and more than 2,700 trained state and local wildland firefighters plus substantial national resources from federal agencies.
AZSF also maintains in-house fire command and firefighting capabilities through the qualifications of its own employees and an inmate fire crew program.
