Media and Public Requests
The Department of Forestry and Fire Management's Public Affairs Department is responsible for the marketing and public outreach within the agency, along with handling public records and media requests, legislative business, and the agency's social media platforms.
For public records requests, please fill out the required form on the Public Records Request page and submit via email.
In the event of a wildfire, please refer to our Twitter page @azstateforestry or check the Arizona Inciweb page for the latest information. Most likely, the information will be posted to Twitter first and then to Inciweb. All media requests for interviews or other information must be handled through the Public Affairs Department of the Department of Forestry and Fire Management.
For media needing information on a wildfire you can reach us at [email protected].
Legislative and Public Events
The Department of Forestry and Fire Management works to provide public outreach through various platforms including social media, billboard marketing campaigns, public service announcements, and community-wide events. Every year, State Forestry participates in the Arizona Game and Fish Wildlife Expo and STEM events at Chase Field. We also work to educate our students by providing classroom guest speakers, including the Arizona State Forester, wildland firefighters, and deputy fire marshals to help teach our students the importance of fire safety.
If you would like to have a speaker for your event or class, or are requesting Smokey Bear's attendance, please contact Public Affairs and Outreach Officer Tiffany Davila.
For all Legislative affairs you can contact Public Affairs and Legislative Officer Bill Boyd.
