Christopher-Kohl’S Fire Department Needs Volunteers


Hello again, fellow Creekers.

The Christopher-Kohl’s Fire Department is looking for volunteers. They are experiencing budget constraints and are in need of volunteers to help fill the gaps in personnel. They offer volunteers a chance to serve their community and a chance to get to know a different job skill. Please contact the Christopher-Kohl’s Fire Department at (928) 478-4403 or stop by and pick up your application at Station #51 in Christopher Creek.

Also, as many of you are aware, there is limited to no cell phone reception in Christopher Creek. In January, AT&T contacted the Christopher Creek Lodge to say they had activated a new mobile broadband cell site in Christopher Creek that would enhance coverage. Coverage for AT&T users has greatly improved in the area, but there is still no coverage with other providers.

If you have a Verizon phone, which currently has no service in Christopher Creek, you can help to get service by calling Verizon at 800-922-0204 and selecting Option 3 for tech support. Give them your phone number and tell them there is no service at Columbine Road in Payson, AZ 85541. You have to say Columbine Road, as this is the only way they can pull up Christopher Creek. With enough work orders they will expedite putting up their new equipment on the tower here (which they rented two years ago). Together we can get Verizon to work in Christopher Creek. Thanks for your help!

As always, I do need your help with content and stories! For anyone wanting to submit information from the Christopher Creek area for inclusion in our weekly article, please email me at: Any submitted pictures must be full-size (typically around 1MB per picture). The cutoff time for inclusion in Friday’s article is close of business on Monday.

Thanks again for reading the column.
