Where are the permanent records, DFFM? Why are so many files missing?

If you scroll down, I am assuming you have read the blog's disclaimers and that if any area is copy/pasted or saved / screen shot --- my analytics takes a video of anyone doing it ---I will know who does any actions without written permission and I require always courtesy credit and written permission to use my images and eyewitness account(s)- Joy A Collura

Welcome World.

Welcome to my "Arizona Department of Forestry Management - Department of Fire - Building and Life Safety and State Land Department" files; releasing of both my paper trail but also my TB EHD digital trail --- we are starting 2023 to share some of the paper trails.

Let me share the above named entity's "authority" role- the office of the State Forester was established in 1966 here in Arizona.

Originally part of the State Land Department, the State Forester was established as a separate position in 2004.

In 2016, the State Fire Marshal was placed under the authority and direction of the State Forester.

Statutes were reorganized as the Arizona Department of Forestry and FIre Management (DFFM) and may be found at A.R.S. 37-1301 through 37-1426.

The purpose of DFFM is to provide for land management and prevention and suppression of wildland fires on state land and on private property land located outside of cities and towns.

Come back to this post after January 24th as I will scan in some more documents on the history of this entity.

Thank you.

Best Regards,

Joy A Collura
