During October, United Maricopa Firefighters Union Local 3878 and Rural Metro Fire teamed up to pass out about 1500 glow sticks, FREE, to make Halloween safer for kids.  The glow sticks were given out at community events, stations, and some crews even cruised the communities to pass out glow sticks to kids on Halloween Night.  One firefighter personally handed out over 300 glow sticks at the HOOT Night event at Walker Butte, where SPARKY the Fire Dog came out to visit the kids.

Rural Metro Fire Donated 3 AED defibrillator units to the San Tan Heights Community Center. The new AEDs were placed in the Fitness Room, the POOL area, and the commons. 

Rural Metro will be conducting their annual Food drive to Support JO Combs Food bank.  They encourage everyone to watch for their announcement of their crews at local stores collecting food or money. All Rural Metro Fire Stations are food donation locations as well.
