As the new Fire Chief for Hellsgate Fire Department, I want to welcome you to our District Website. I hope that the information in the website will be beneficial to you.
As winter approaches, I would like to remind anyone that has a fireplace to make sure that it is ready to go for the season. Please be sure that the system has been checked and cleaned for use. Make sure that firewood and any flammable material is stored away from the opening to the fireplace. Before using it, make sure that the flue is open to allow the smoke to draw away from the burning material.
If anyone is planning on burning any outside material, please contact the Department for a burn permit. Look at the District website for more information on a permit. You may contact the Business Manager at 928- 474-3835 or stop by Fire Station 21 in Star Valley to visit with us. Station 21 is located at 80 S. Walters Lane, Star Valley, Arizona. Our office hours are changing effective Monday Nov. 23, 2020. Hours will be from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM. This is only effective during the winter months. If you have an emergency, as always- call 911!
One other item that I would like to remind anyone of is to make sure that their smoke (and carbon monoxide) detectors are working. Check your detectors monthly and replace the batteries once or twice a year. If you need a new detector, please stop by Station 21 in Star Valley to pick one up.
I am looking forward to meeting as many of our District residents in the future.
