Tubac Fire District says it’s owed $130 thousand dollars, including $36 thousand from work on fires in California but it says it's continuing to deploy wildland fire crews while it maintains full protection at home.
Green Valley says good budget management will allow that Fire District to maintain protection while it waits for reimbursement.
L.T. Pratt of Green Valley says, “Other smaller districts, I'm sure that outstanding balance has really crimped their services to their communities, to their districts."
Right now Green Valley is still sending crews when other areas call. We watched L.T. Pratt head out to work a new fire in Northern Arizona.
