We are pleasant, good natured, and kind. We demonstrate this in how we care for those we serve and each other.


We do the right thing, even when no one is watching. It is essential that who we serve and our members can trust us to take care of them in the most vulnerable situations. We practice this value with each other and throughout the Rio Verde Fire District.



We hold ourselves to a high standard of job performance and behavior. We will be responsible for our successes. We will work to recognize and act when we can improve.

We have the professional knowledge, skills, and experience to deliver excellent service. We pay attention to and recognize the needs of the community and the Rio Verde Fire District.


We are knowledgeable about our service delivery and consistently look for ways to improve our service. Our members are educated and look for opportunities to broaden and improve our knowledge and skills.
