Mayer Fire responded to a rollover accident on Northbound I-17 at mile marker 262 (1/2 mile south of the Hwy. 69 junction) on Friday April 25th at just before 2:00 p.m.  Crews arrived to find a vehicle on its side trapped between sign posts with the 33 year old female driver pinned underneath the vehicle.  The passenger was a two year old in a proper child restraint seat with no apparent injuries.  The driver required a difficult, long, careful extrication to remove the vehicle off her and to remove her from being trapped inside the vehicle.  The extrication took approximately 80 minutes.  The driver, who was 24 weeks pregnant, suffered lacerations and possible neck/back injuries and was transported by a Mayer Fire ambulance to a medical helicopter at Cordes Lakes park and then flown to JCL North Mountain Trauma Center in Phoenix.  Early indications are that the pregnancy was not affected by the accident.  The 2 year old passenger was transported by Lifeline ambulance to YRMC East for precautionary reasons.

 

Traffic was backed up on Northbound I-17 for several hours and a second accident occurred at mile marker 259, with only minor injuries, during the backup.

 

Additional staffing was called in to staff another Mayer Fire Engine Company to cover other emergencies in the District.

“Mayer Fire Receives $50,000 Tribal Grant”

 

The Gila River Indian Community has awarded the Mayer Fire District with a Grant from their 2013 grant program.  The grant will provide $50,000 toward the funding of a firefighter position.  Fire Chief Glenn Brown stated “this couldn’t have come at a better time.”   “This coming year we will bring in 45% less property tax revenue then when the economic downturn began to affect fire districts in 2009/2010.”  Firefighter Paramedic Mike Pearson and Captain Jason LaGreca manage Mayer Fire’s Native American Grant Program.

 

The grant will help Mayer Fire as they continue to try and maintain their three fire stations with staffing of two firefighters each day.  Mayer Fire’s management and the Firefighters Union have worked together to reduce expenses over the last several years in order to keep staffing levels up.  “The sacrifices made by our employees have allowed us to continue to provide such high quality service to our citizens” said Brown. The grant brings Mayer Fire’s total grant revenue to over $1,325,000 since Chief Brown came on board in 2004.

 

“The grant is awarded through Yavapai County and we appreciate the assistance of Supervisor Thurman, his staff and the entire Board of Supervisors” said Chief Brown.

“Mayer Fire Receives Largest Overall Grant in Department’s History”

 

The Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG) Program of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has awarded the Mayer Fire Department a grant for $424,090.  The grant is a regional grant of the Western Yavapai Fire Chief’s Association (WYFCA) that was formed last year and that the Mayer Fire Chief, Glenn Brown, serves as its President.  The grant was written by, and is hosted by Mayer Fire, and will be shared with the Walker, Crown King and Ash Fork Fire Departments.  “This was the first major project of the WYFCA and proves how working together helps all of the citizens we serve” said Chief Brown.  “Congratulations also go to Chief Nusbaum in Walker, Chief Lombardo in Crown King and Chief Hume in Ash Fork for their hard work in compiling the information for this grant”  Brown also said.

 

The grant is for the purchase of approximately fifty-eight Self Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA), spare air bottles and individual firefighter air masks.  The new SCBA units will comply with the newest National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) standards.  “This grant will allow us to provide for safer equipment for the firefighters in all four of our departments while allowing us to save money on repair and replacement costs of the older units we have in service today” stated Chief Brown.

 

This brings the total grant revenues of the Mayer Fire Department to just under $1,500,000 during Chief Brown’s ten year tenure.  This continues to meet Chief Brown’s goal of earning more in grant money than his salary.

“Mayer Fire Receives Largest Individual Grant in Department’s History”

 

It only took the Mayer Fire District a couple of months to set another grant record.  The Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG) Program of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has awarded the Mayer Fire Department a Staffing For Adequate Fire and Emergency Response grant (SAFER) for $291,555.  The grant is the largest individual financial grant in Mayer Fire’s history, a joint grant with 3 other departments for $402,886 was awarded only a few months ago but that grant brought under $215,000 to Mayer Fire.

 

The grant will provide for the hiring of 3 full-time firefighter/paramedics and pay all salary and benefit costs for those positions for a two year period.    “This will allow us to return to our normal staffing level of 5 full-time firefighters and 1 part-time firefighter on duty each day; that was in place prior to the recent economic downturn” stated Mayer Fire Chief Glenn Brown.

 

The Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response (SAFER) Grants were created to provide funding directly to fire departments and volunteer firefighter interest organizations to help them increase the number of trained, "front line" firefighters available in their communities.

 

“The Mayer Fire Department management and labor (Mayer Chapter of the United Yavapai Firefighters Association) has worked together over recent years to keep our staffing and service levels as high as possible, while enduring a 45% reduction in property tax revenues since 2009” said Brown. “This included the unprecedented move by all of our employees to voluntarily give up approximately $60,000 a year in benefits for two straight years”. 

 

“This grant should allow the Mayer Fire Department to maintain our normal staffing levels through the remainder of the economic downturn and the future”  stated Fire Board Chairman Mike Rhodes.

 

This brings the total grant revenues of the Mayer Fire Department to just over $1,800,000 during Chief Brown’s ten year tenure.  This continues to meet Chief Brown’s goal of earning more in grant money than his salary.
