The Somerton Cocopah Fire Department is comprised of seven divisions:
- Fire Inspection and Investigation
- Suppression and Emergency Medical Services
- Public Information
- Ambulance Billing
Regarding how we provide service, to the Public, the Somerton Cocopah Fire Department strongly believes the following:
Our service delivery methodology will always be and is: "Service before self".
We believe that "Community", is not only Somerton and the Cocopah Tribal Lands, but all of those persons who live in the surrounding areas and who travel its byways.
We strive to gain the public trust, by keeping a positive attitude, even in difficult and trying circumstances.
Somerton Cocopah Fire Department values employee contributions and promotes teamwork by facilitating their participation in the decision making processes.
We strongly believe in our employees and expect them to be the best Fire & EMS providers in all of Yuma County.
We will always respond to all requests efficiently and take pride in providing the highest level of professionalism.
Our citizens are our customers and we take pride in providing service to them.
The City of Somerton and the Cocopah Nation entered into an Intergovernmental Agreement (IGA) in 2001 in order to pool their resources and create a "value-added" element for their respective citizens.
The Somerton Cocopah Fire Department provides an All Hazards service to its citizens. As a department which provides an All Hazards service we provide emergent and non-emergent responses to: All fires, emergency medical services (basic life support and advanced cardiac life support), hazardous materials, fire prevention education, fire prevention inspections, arson investigation, and special duty responses.
We achieve this, out of one station, with our full and part-time staff of: 1 Chief, 1 Battalion Chief, 1 Inspector/Investigator, 3 Captains, and 9 Firefighters. We have 27 part-time Firefighters that provide backfill and call back support.
In addition to providing an All Hazards service to the community, we also provide ambulance service to an area of some 69 square miles. This is accomplished with 1 ambulance at our Public Safety Facility in Somerton and 2 more ambulances operating out of the City of San Luis Fire Department.
