For over 35 years, the Golder Ranch Fire District has been proudly providing fire and emergency medical services to the communities of Oro Valley, Catalina, and SaddleBrooke. Operating from seven fire stations, the men and women of Golder Ranch Fire stand ready to respond 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. But we are much more than a fire department.
The Golder Ranch Fire District was created in 1977 by a vote of the residents in the area. The homeowners wanted to have a voice in their fire and medical care and at the same time, monitor costs. Today, the district serves a 210 square mile area with a population of nearly 65,000 residents. Included in the district are the communities of Oro Valley, Catalina, SaddleBrooke and southern Pinal County.
