History[edit]

The Phoenix Fire Department was established as a volunteer fire department on August 17, 1886 with the formation of Engine 1.[3] In 1922 the department transitioned from volunteers to career members. From 1924 to 1947 the department created the A, B, and C shifts, which start and end every third day at 8:00 AM.[3] In 1936 the Phoenix Fire Department joined the International Association of Firefighters and formed the union Local 493. The surrounding fire departments, Tempe, Glendale, and Peoria, are also part of Local 493.[4]

USAR Task Force[edit]

The Phoenix Fire Department is the sponsoring agency for the Arizona USAR Task Force, one of the 28 FEMA Urban Search and Rescue Task Forces spread across the country. Some of their notable deployments include Northridge earthquake (1994), Hurricane Katrina (2005) and Oso mudslide (2014).[5]
