NEW CPR Classes on July 29th and August 19th at Daisy Mountain FD Station 145:



CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation) is beneficial for the public to know for several reasons:
1. **Immediate Response**: CPR can be administered right away in emergencies such as cardiac arrest, buying crucial time until professional help arrives.
2. **Life-Saving**: It can significantly increase the chances of survival for someone experiencing cardiac arrest by maintaining blood flow and oxygenation to vital organs.
3. **Community Resilience**: When more people know CPR, communities become more resilient to sudden cardiac emergencies, increasing overall safety.
4. **Empowerment**: Learning CPR empowers individuals to take action in emergencies, potentially saving the life of a loved one, friend, or even a stranger.
Overall, CPR is a critical skill that equips individuals to respond effectively to cardiac emergencies, making communities safer and potentially saving lives.


IN ARIZONA: Good Samaritan laws offer protection to someone who attempts to help a person in distress. It provides legal immunity from liability for damages arising from the assistance given, as long as it is done in good faith and without negligence.

‍The Good Samaritan law typically does not protect individuals from liability in cases of gross negligence or intentional misconduct. While it provides legal immunity for reasonable actions taken to assist in an emergency, it does not shield against actions that go beyond ordinary negligence or involve deliberate harm.

Come join us in July for our free class, or sign up for the CPR certification class in August. We hope to see you there!

July 27th, 2024 CAVE CREEK Car Seat Event

We are hosting a Car Seat event in the CAVE CREEK area. Refer to flyer above for details about the inspection event:

Proper car seat installation is crucial for ensuring the safety of young passengers in vehicles. A correctly installed car seat significantly reduces the risk of injury or death in the event of a crash by securely restraining the child and absorbing impact forces. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), car seats can decrease the risk of fatal injury by 71% for infants and 54% for toddlers. Incorrect installation, however, can render even the best car seats ineffective. This highlights the importance of adhering to manufacturer guidelines and seeking assistance if needed to ensure the car seat is firmly secured and correctly positioned.

Beyond just following installation instructions, regular checks and adjustments are essential as children grow and as car seats may shift over time. Factors such as the transition from rear-facing to forward-facing positions, or adjustments for a child's height and weight, necessitate periodic reassessment of the seat's fit and installation. Many community resources, including certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians, offer free inspections and guidance to help parents and caregivers ensure optimal car seat safety. Proper installation not only complies with legal requirements but more importantly, it provides peace of mind that children are traveling as safely as possible.

Protecting your home from brush fires is vital to safeguard your property, your family, and your peace of mind. Brush fires can spread rapidly, especially in areas with dry vegetation or during hot and windy conditions, posing a significant threat to homes located near wildlands or open fields. Implementing protective measures like clearing flammable vegetation, creating defensible space around your property, and using fire-resistant building materials can greatly reduce the risk of fire damage. Ensuring proper fire breaks, maintaining clean gutters and roofs, and having a well-thought-out evacuation plan can not only help protect your home but also provide critical time for emergency responders to act. Being proactive in fire prevention and preparedness can make a significant difference in minimizing the impact of a brush fire, ultimately preserving lives and properties.

As part of the Daisy Mountain Wildland Division, we understand the importance of safety during the upcoming summer wildfire season. We want to make sure you become FIREWISE this summer. For more information on how to protect your home you can visit:

Proactive Fall Injury Prevention: A Lifesaving Initiative by the Daisy Mountain Fire Department

Preventing fall injuries is crucial as falls can drastically alter a person's life, leading to severe consequences such as fractures, loss of mobility, and a decline in overall health and independence. A fall can result in lengthy hospital stays, costly medical bills, and a prolonged recovery period that affects not only the individual but their family and caregivers as well. Recognizing the significant impact of falls, the Daisy Mountain Fire Department is committed to proactive measures to help prevent this common emergency. By offering educational programs, conducting home safety assessments, and collaborating with community partners, the department aims to reduce fall risks and promote safer environments for all residents. Their dedication to fall prevention reflects a broader mission to enhance community well-being and ensure that everyone can live safely and confidently in their homes.

Daisy Mountain and Honor Health Deer Valley Partner to Launch Nationally Accredited Fall Injury Prevention Program

This vital fall prevention program is led by certified instructor and RN Becky Jones, who utilizes evidence-based strategies to enhance safety and reduce fall risks. The program incorporates exercise, stretching, strength training, and hazard removal to improve participants' stability and environment. Currently, volunteer residents at Merrill Gardens Senior Living Center are concluding their program on July 3rd, with a new session starting in August. Details about the upcoming class will be provided closer to the start date. The program aims to expand to the Enclave Assisted Living Center in the near future. If you have loved ones at home or in local senior care facilities in Anthem, you can fill out information online to receive updates about this valuable program and other fall injury prevention efforts.
