CAMP VERDE – Thursday, the Camp Verde Fire District’s governing board could accept a letter of interest from Steve Darby to replace Ken Krebbs, who resigned from the board on Jan. 18.

Darby, who was one of the fire district’s original board members in 2010, resigned in 2017. Now a fire science instructor with Valley Academy for Career and Technology Education, Darby says he is now ready to “do whatever I can to help the fire board.”

Of his previous tenure with CVFD, Darby says “we accomplished a lot, building a new fire station, and brought up a level of safety.”

With the Joint Powers Agreement between Camp Verde Fire District and the Montezuma-Rimrock Fire District that created the Copper Canyon Fire and Medical Authority, Darby says “things are going great” and that he is “looking forward to serving the community on the fire board.”

Darby’s appointment would be to serve with the Camp Verde Fire District’s governing board, not the Copper Canyon Fire and Medical Authority’s governing board.

Darby’s appointment would be through Nov. 30, says Copper Canyon Fire Chief Terry Keller.
