How busy is Sun City Fire and Medical Department? Busier than nearly all others in the state, according to call volume. The Sun City department is part of a fire district that includes Sun City, Youngtown and the Citrus Point neighborhood, an area south of Bell Road in the 114th Avenue alignment. SCFMD handles an average of about 1,000 calls per month, with most of those being medical related. “This is a very busy department,” said Tim Wilmes, Sun City fire district board member. “Our numbers are right up there with some of the biggest departments in the state.” Ron Deadman, Sun City fire chief, said Sun City’s Engine 133 handled the most calls in 2018 with 4,377 and Engine 132 topped the charts in 2017 with 4,156. Those call volumes topped, in 2018, and nearly surpassed Phoenix Fire Department’s Engine 18, which had 4,262 in 2018 and 4,612 in 2017.
