SHOW LOW — At the recent annual business meeting of the Arizona Fire Districts Association (AFDA), Timber Mesa Fire Chief Bryan Savage was reelected to his third term as the Vice-President of that association.
The Timber Mesa Fire and Medical District (TMFMD) is a special taxing district formed in 2014 as a result of the successful collaboration and the merger of the Lakeside, Show Low and Linden Fire Districts. TMFMD is dedicated to proactive risk reduction efforts, medical services and fire response. We value our community and the public trust we have earned. Fiscal responsibility and integrity are the cornerstones upon which we are built.
In July of 2012 the Show Low Fire District (SLFD) was made aware that public funds may have been stolen or otherwise misused. The staff at SLFD, led by Chief Randy Chevalier, took the information to the Fire Board who initiated an investigation by multiple third-party consultants. That investigation demonstrated significant financial issues that should be turned over to law enforcement. In August of 2012 the former SLFD employees implicated in the investigation had either retired or resigned.
