SFD No Longer Needs Food and Water Donations! The Sedona community is the best. Thank you very much!

Sedona Fire District is happy to say that we have received enough food and water donations at this time. We are extremely grateful to the community for this outpouring of support and are amazed by how wonderfully giving Sedona is! If you want to donate food and water,  please contact either the Sedona Food Bank or the Red Cross. They will need donations for the possible evacuees of this fire. Contact information for the Red Cross is below.

If you want to help our SFD Firefighters and our community directly, SFD is establishing a Community Wildland Prevention Fund. Proceeds will be used by SFD for programs within our community directly related to reducing the potential for wildland fires.  As soon as we have the information for how to donate, we will post it on our website.

Thank you for everything you are doing. Sedona is the best!!!
