Mayer Fire District Joins Dewey-Humboldt Firewise with their “Don’t Get Burned” Wildfire Safety Event

Working hard to prevent a tragedy and prepare us all to live with the possibility


Yavapai County, AZ: Today, Mayer Fire District is announcing their participation in Dewey-Humboldt (DH) Firewise’s 1st annual “Don’t Get Burned” Wildfire Safety Event to be held May 22, 2021 from 11am-1pm at Mortimer Farms. The free event will be a fantastic opportunity for all residents to gain an understanding of the potential of wildfires in our environment, how to prevent one, and how to prepare for the very real possibility. We will be joined with an excellent complement of other fire-related organizations and local businesses to provide interested folks a one-stop location for learning what they can do to be prepared. To entice the kids of all ages, conditions permitting, an ambulance, 4 fire engines and their crews, and Smokey Bear will be on hand. With this year’s predicted potential for an awful wildfire season, this couldn’t come at a better time and we urge everyone to come talk to the experts and learn what they should know about our part of the county’s only real, probable natural disaster – wildfire.


In order to get our youth involved, DH firewise is supplementing the event with a “Don’t Get Burned” Wildfire Safety Poster Contest. All Yavapai County School District schools have been invited to have their K-12 scholars create a poster that uses the students’ creativity to raise awareness of the dangers, prevention methods, sources for emergency information and first responders, and evacuation routes. This ongoing contest, which is open to ALL K-12 students, will close on May 5th with judging for the 12 winning posters happening on May 7th.  During the “Don’t Get Burned” Event on May 12th, each of the winners and their contributing classroom teachers will receive $100 for their prize-winning efforts, and those 12 posters will be used to create a year of wildfire reminders within an available calendar. Information related to the contest can be found at https://www.d-hfw.com/contest.


As of now, joining Mayer Fire District will be a great list of fire-related organizations and businesses, assisted by several generous supporters. To date, the list includes:

Animal Disaster Services, Inc AZ Dept of Forestry & Fire Management (DFFM) Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Central Arizona Fire & Medical Authority (CAFMA)
Dewey Auto Repair, LLC Dewey Pharmacy Elevation Coffee Equine Emergency Evacuation (EEE)
Galpin Ford & RV Go Media JT’s Septic, LLC Kachina Animal Hospital
Large Animal Shelters & Emergency Readiness (LASER) LifeLine Ambulance Mayer Fire Department (MFD) Mortimer Farms
Moxie Gizmo Nackard Pepsi Optima Medical Prescott National Forest (PNF)
Prescott Valley Heating and Cooling (PVHAC) Quail Construction State Farm Insurance Yavapai County CERT
Yavapai County Emergency Management Yavapai County Jeep Posse (YCJP) Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office (YCSO) And of course, DH Firewise


Most residents aren’t aware of the urgent, looming wildfire dangers, prevention steps, evacuation routes, and where to get the latest info. We’re excited to support DH Firewise, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, all volunteer organization, in getting out this incredibly important message to our community and anticipate that the knowledge it will bring to concerned residents will make us all that much safer.

Due to recent moisture, cooler temperatures and a reduction in fire activity the Mayer Fire District is lifting the current fire restrictions for the residents in our communities. This is in conjunction with the Prescott National Forest, Bureau of Land Management, Department of Forestry and Fire Management and other area fire agencies. We may still see days with high winds or elevated fire dangers which may cause no burning for a particular day. We still ask everyone to be extremely careful with fire and please use the ashtrays in your vehicles.
