EMIFPA, the East Mountain Interagency Fire Protection Association, serves eastern Bernalillo, eastern Sandoval, western Torrance, and southwestern Santa Fe Counties in New Mexico. EMIFPA is composed of fire protection, emergency management, and law enforcement agencies, as well as local residents and businesses. They work in partnership to help make the East Mountain area as safe as possible from injury or property damage resulting from fire.
EMIFPA services to the East Mountain community include cooperating agency training and education; community awareness education and outreach; project coordination; and interagency coordination and collaboration to address the unique challenges presented by the region’s wildland urban interface.
EMIFPA provides technical and other assistance to residents and homeowner associations in emergency preparedness and risk reduction. In addition to workshops, seminars, and other training, EMIFPA can arrange to meet with local groups to discuss such issues as evacuation planning, defensible space, and other proactive measures that may help to protect lives and property. Our neighborhood outreach program works with neighborhood associations to help ensure that area residents are as ready as they can be to respond to real world emergencies should they arise.
