The possible consolidation of two area fire districts won’t occur quickly. The Mohave County Board of Supervisors has directed involved parties to work to merge the more rural and densely populated Lake Mohave Ranchos Fire District into the larger Kingman-based Northern Arizona Consolidated Fire District (NACFD).
Fire Chief Pat Moore said the NACFD governing board will likely discuss the matter at its April 16 meeting. Moore said public information and input meetings will likely be held in each of the fire districts sometime in June and July.
Moore said the consolidation question won’t likely be formally answered until late this summer. Should there be approval, Moore said it would likely take until the early fall to implement a merger.
