OK. Here's the facts...
You are in the business of firefighting. You know the lingo. I don't. You should be clearer as to what you are looking for. First you wanted property near route 66 and Hackberry. Now you are looking at Hackberry and I-40. BIG difference...Stay on Hackberry and out of Cedar Hills. Many residents have their own methods already set up to fight a fire should it come onto their property close enough to a structure.

I suggest you contact Bill Blake. He would be the person who could sell you surplus property at a low price in the area you want.

ok so do you have contact information for Mr.Blake please?

Also, we looked up your area there off Rt 93. That is way too close to Pinion Pines district anyways and they cover that area. We recieved a map back from Mohave County GIS mapping and it shows exactly where Pinion Pines legal district is and by the looks of the map, it looks as though they would be annexing Cedar Hills just about anytime soon.

Lastly, i must mention that i do not know the area that well there which is why i came in these forums to ask.
Once Rambrush mentioned that the immediate Hackberry area was in the grapevine of being annexed by Hualapai then that kind of deterred us from wanting to be there so we was wanting to look further west.
Please do not think that we could not buy into your area and form a Department becuase by Arizona law, we can, and we do not even need the residents permission. There are real estate offices there that would happily sell a peice of property.
Once we are formed and are on the 911 system with Mohave County then there is not much, if anything that the residents can do. Once you are a legal Department, which we already are, 911 will automatically enter your Department into the 911 system. When a resident within your reponse vicinity calls in an emergency, guess who would get the call? :-)
Another footnote that we might add is this: IF we were to relocate around that area, our company name would not even be "Bridge Canyon".

here is the article that just came out in regards to Valle Vista and Hackberry fire coverage.

With $948,825 in federal money, the Hualapai Valley Fire District will staff Station No. 6 full time.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security Federal Emergency Management Agency awarded a Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response grant to the HVFD to hire nine additional full-time emergency medical technician or paramedic firefighters.

"The nine new personnel will be hired within the next 90 days, and will be assigned to the Antares Road fire station in Valle Vista," Fire Chief Wayne L. Eder said. "Firefighters will work 24-hour shifts, with a total of three personnel on duty at a time."

The station currently is served by full-time firefighters working 12-hour shifts seven days a week with volunteer firefighters covering at night. This schedule has been in place since November.

With the additions, the total staffing available in Valle Vista will be six at a time with one duty chief, two firefighters at Station No. 5 and three firefighters at Station No. 6.

As part of the grant, FEMA will pay 90 percent of the firefighters' salary the first year, 80 percent the second year, 70 percent the third year and 50 percent the fourth year. When the fifth year arrives, the fire district will assume all responsibility for funding the salaries.

As part of the application process, the fire district had to insure future funding levels will be adequate to maintain the program after the grant expires, Eder said. With annexations in Valle Vista and Hackberry, the HVFD expects future tax funding - which usually takes more than a year to be received by the fire district - to cover the costs.

We are not wanting in the Hackberry area now. We changed our minds awhile back. We are looking more into areas between Silver Springs Rd and Jolly Road. That will plenty far enough from any districts.
