A Firewise Community

Pinetop Community Association was officially recognized and designated as a qualified participant in the Firewise Communities / USA recognition program in November 2014. The program is renewed annually. Association members are encouraged to Contact the Board for more information on being Firewise!

In 2015 we first partnered with the Pinetop Fire District (PFD) to co-host an annual community Firewise Block Party. Please see the Events page for more information on this years date.

Our goal is to continue this annual event and be joined by other Firewise USA communities as we work together to get the Firewise message out to our White Mountain Community.
