'Tis the Season for Fireworks sales, use & permits
Arizona state law regulates the sale and use of fireworks for both professional and consumer products. The winter holidays have a short period of time that consumer products are for sale and an even smaller window of time they can be used. Be safe, learn more about the rules:

Tempe Fire Medical Rescue
The Tempe Fire Medical Rescue Department is an “all hazards” department that responds to all types of incidents including fires, automobile accidents, medical emergencies, hazardous materials response, technical rescues and much more. Additionally, we pride ourselves in being involved in promoting emergency preparedness, fire prevention and a variety of life safety programs.
The Tempe Fire Medical Rescue Department was the first Internationally Accredited Department in the nation, and we are fully accredited through the Commission on Fire Accreditation International. The Tempe Fire Medical Rescue Department has an ISO rating of 2. Tempe is one of 585 in the country to achieve this high rating and has maintained this rating since 1982, which speaks to the Department’s fire suppression capabilities.
Tempe participates in an automatic aid system with 26 other fire departments in the Phoenix area. Automatic aid means the closest unit is dispatched using GPS to an emergency regardless of jurisdiction. For example, if a fire is on the Tempe/Mesa border and Tempe Fire is closer to the incident than Mesa, Tempe will respond. This decreases response times, provides the department with unlimited resources, and is a more efficient and effective use of resources throughout the Phoenix area.
Our Mission: We, the members of the Tempe Fire Medical Rescue Department, dedicate our efforts to provide for the safety and welfare of the public through preservation of life, health, property and the environment.
