(GILA COUNTY, AZ)—

Residents of Gila County, particularly those in the areas of Russell Gulch, Icehouse Canyon, Kellner Canyon, and Six Shooter Canyon, are encouraged to prepare their properties for monsoon season. As a result of the Pinal Fire, these areas may see an increased amount of water flow from the burned area. Residents are encouraged to remove any debris from waterways, culverts, or drainage ditches on their property, for example: dead and down vegetation, excess waste, or any other items that could potentially block a waterway.

Please call Gila County Emergency Management with any questions at 928-402-8789.
