One of the quintessential destinations in the American southwest is the Greater Phoenix Metropolitan Area in Maricopa County, Arizona. The Valley of the Sun, as it’s known, boasts more than 300 days of sunshine a year and blends legendary sunsets and the tranquility of desert skies with the world-class amenities of a major urban center.
The Arizona Fire & Medical Authority (AFMA) is a local government that provides fire and emergency medical services (EMS) to approximately 75,000 residents, who chose to reside outside the jurisdiction of the many municipal fire departments within central Maricopa County.
