Body

Item Summary

 

For the past fifteen years, Prescott has hosted the Arizona Wildfire and Incident Management Academy. The annual event attracts over 1,000 firefighters for one week and has become the premier wildland firefighting and incident management training event in the nation. Several years ago, the Academy and City of Prescott established an arrangement enabling finances to be passed through the City into a cost recovery account.

 

Background

 

The Arizona Wildfire and Incident Management Academy wishes to apply for grants from the Tohono O’odham Nation, the Gila River Indian Community, the Pascua Yaqui Tribe, and the Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation for general operating expenses. One of the stipulations is for the City of Prescott to act as the fiscal agent for the grants, and that the City supply to the entities a Resolution confirming support for the application and pass-through to the Arizona Wildfire Academy. The accounting mechanism is already in place and the Arizona Wildfire Academy will abide by all City of Prescott financial and purchasing procedures. The grants will allow for the continued operation of this vital training event in Prescott.

 

Financial Impact

 

The City Finance Department has already established a project account for this funding to ensure that all fiscal requirements will be followed in the event any of the grant applications are awarded.
