Drexel Heights Fire District boundaries include 60 square miles just outside the Tucson city limits in Pima County. The population of the unincorporated area is about 50,000 people. The topography of the area consists of flat lands, rolling desert and parts of the beautiful Tucson Mountains.
It is with deep regret and sorrow that the Drexel Heights Fire District announces the sudden passing of Captain/CEP John McCaffrey on May 16, 2016 following an accident at home. Our thoughts and prayers are with John’s wife and grown children. Captain McCaffrey joined the Drexel Heights organization in July, 1994 and was most recently assigned to C-shift Station 405. Throughout his career, Captain McCaffrey was active in the Pima area fire/EMS community as an Emergency Department Paramedic, flight medic and instructor. His passing will touch many people in the region.
