Yesterday, the wildfire incident command team was transferred to a new commander. The fire has grown by approximately 700 acres and the containment has grown to 32%. The fire crews are fighting the fire more aggressively.
The new incident management team is recommending that people in Icehouse and Kellner Canyons, begin to prepare for possible evacuation, just in case the winds pick up and begin to blow embers into these areas.
Yesterday all aerial resources had to be grounded after a civilian drone was spotted near the fire. This directly impacted suppression efforts. If you fly, we can’t. It is illegal to interfere with the efforts of firefighters to extinguish a fire. Every time a drone is spotted anywhere within the Temporary Flight Restriction (TFR) area, all aircraft have to land until we can be sure the drone is clear of this area.
As this wildfire enters its third week, some of the residents of Globe and Miami, are beginning to wonder when this fire will come to its conclusion. As A community we must come together and do our part in assisting the wildfire crews. Flying drones in a flight restricted area is not only illegal but it hinders operations, which in turn keeps the fire burning.
PLEASE DO YOUR PART, DO NOT FLY DRONES IN A FAA FLIGHT RESTRICTED ZONE!
There will be a Community Meeting Tonight at 5:00 p.m. at the High Desert Middle School, 4000 High Desert Dr. Globe, AZ.
We plan to try to livestream the meeting on https://www.facebook.com/US-Forest-Service-Tonto-National-Forest-243703969383690/. American Sign Language (ASL) services and captioning will be provided.

Each type of disaster requires different measures to keep your pets safe, so the best thing you can do for yourself and your pets is to be prepared.

Profile of an Active Shooter
An Active Shooter is an individual actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a confined and populated area; in most cases, active shooters use firearms(s) and there is no pattern or method to their selection of victims. Active shooter situations are unpredictable and evolve quickly. Typically, the immediate deployment of law enforcement is required to stop the shooting and mitigate harm to victims. Because active shooter situations are often over within 10 to 15 minutes, before law enforcement arrives on the scene, individuals must be prepared both mentally and physically to deal with an active shooter situation.
