Dan E Leeds Scholarship  Recipients 2024

Greer Fire District held our 15th annual Open House over Memorial Weekend.

The DE Leeds Scholarship Committee and Daniel Leeds presented two scholarship awards, each for $1500.00. 

          The first award went to, Benjamin Jessop of Concho. Benjamin is a graduating senior from St John's High School. He is enrolling in the EMT program at Northland Pioneer College this fall. Benjamin is following in the footsteps of his parents who are both long-serving members of the Fire and EMS community here in northeastern Arizona.

          The second award went to Greer Fire Captain /EMT Jacob Orona. Jacob is a career firefighter for the GFD and will be enrolled in the Paramedic program through Northland Pioneer College this fall.

          The nation’s EMS system is facing a crippling workforce shortage, a long-term problem that has been building for more than a decade. It threatens to undermine the emergency 9-1-1 infrastructure and will require innovative solutions by EMS leaders to create, sustain, and retain a viable workforce.  Arizona is no different than the rest of the nation.  These two scholarships support EMS /Fire workforce development by providing this award to Benjamin Jessop and EMS /Fire workforce retention by awarding  Jacob Orona.

Wildland Fire Suppression

At an elevation of 8,300 feet and surrounded by more than 2 million acres of the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest in Arizona's White Mountains, you can imagine how serious GFD is about protecting our forests and preventing wildland fires!


Wildland fire suppression is one of the most critical services we provide at GFD.  To assist us in this effort, we have multiple trucks that are equipped and designed just for our rugged terrain and difficult access areas.

Rescue Capabilities

With three main lakes in Greer (Bunch, Tunnel, and Reservoir), hundreds of miles of wild streams, rivers, and lakes in the surrounding area, GFD trains intensely in modern water rescue techniques to keep you safe. 


Greer is famous for its many beautiful mountain hiking trails ranging from easy strolls to expert-level terrain. You can explore with confidence knowing that our fire and rescue personnel are fully prepared to handle any emergency that might occur and provide mountain rescue when needed.
