Daisy Mountain Fire District was formed in 1989 to serve the residents of New River and Desert Hills. In 2003 the district grew to include the unincorporated community of Anthem, and again in 2017 to include Black Canyon City.

Today, DMFM spans two counties, and protects a population of about 55,000 residents. The district covers approximately 210-square-miles and is served by five fire stations. Its service area includes a dangerous 35-mile-long stretch of Interstate 17 from about Carefree Highway to north of Sunset Point.
