Sunsites-Pearce Fire District is based out of Pearce, Arizona with a second fire station in Cochise, Arizona.  The district provides fire and medical emergency response services, public outreach promoting basic fire training and courtesy home inspections to identify potential fire and safety hazards.  Additionally, the district actively supports wildfire response efforts in both Arizona and out of state.

Use of loan funds:

Community Investment Corporation provided a short-term loan to ensure continuity of services through the end of their fiscal year.

Impact of loan on your organization and/or the community:

The loan funds came during a crucial time — the end of the fiscal year and in the midst of wildfire season, with several firefighters deployed out of state at any given time.  The capital was imperative in ensuring uninterrupted services locally, while fully supporting deployed firefighters.
