ZONE CONCEPT

The Southwest Area is divided into nine Zones, plus the State of Arizona Division of Fire Management.  Each Zone has its own interagency Zone Coordinating Group comprised of representatives from the Federal and State agencies within the Zone. This Group is responsible for overseeing fire management activities within the Zone to include individual and team training (i.e. Type 3), and daily operations of the primary dispatch center.

DISPATCH CENTERS & UNITS

The Dispatch Center is considered the third-tier of the National Dispatch System.  It is the focal point for mobilizing firefighting resources between units within the dispatch area of responsibility.  This includes coordinating resources within a unit and incoming resources from other dispatch areas, mobilizing resources to other dispatch areas, and collecting and disseminating fire intelligence information within dispatch area and with the SWCC. The Southwest Area has twelve Dispatch Centers that mobilize and demobilize resources directly with SWCC. In some Zones, there may be a fourth-tier dispatch center, which work with the Zone's primary dispatch center.
