On May 18th, Mayer Fire along with DPS met with the 3rd grade elementary school students to talk about public safety. The kids had a blast asking questions and learning about firefighting/police equipment.
Mayer Fire recently took delivery of a 2015 Ford F-350 4×4 ambulance. This apparatus was purchased through bond election monies. Along with the ambulance, MFD purchased a new Water Tender and Structural Engine that should arrive in 6-9 months. The ambulance will be replacing a 13 year old unit, the water tender will be replacing a 27 year old unit, and the engine acquisition will create a spare piece of apparatus.
At just after 9:15 a.m. Mayer Fire units responded to a multi vehicle accident in front of the Circle K at Central Ave. and Highway 69 in Mayer. Crews found 3 vehicles involved with a total of 4 patients. Two patients were transported, one to Goodyear by Mayer Fire and one to YRMC East by Lifeline Ambulance, with non life threatening injuries. The main entrance into Mayer was partially blocked for almost an hour.

Crews arrived to find an SUV perched on a guard rail with its engine on fire. What looked like a very serious accident involving a number of vehicles turned out to only be a single vehicle accident with only one patient. The 30 year old female driver was transported by Mayer Fire ambulance to YRMC East with non-life threatening injuries. Crews quickly got the fire under control. Traffic on Highway 69 was reduced to only one lane for about 45 minutes.
