CAMP VERDE – It’s been busy for Copper Canyon Fire and Medical Authority, said Battalion Chief Dale Duns in a news release.
The department received 38 calls within 48 hours.
Friday afternoon, CCFMA responded to a residential fire call on Aztec Drive in Rimrock. A patient was successfully rescued, and the fire was contained to the room of origin, said Duns.
CCFMA also responded to 10 motor vehicle accidents; six of the accidents were rollovers.
“These were due to a storm cell that sat above I-17,” said Duns.
All patients received treatment and/or were transported to the nearest available medical facility.
