As a growing community the district assists and receives aid from other agencies including, Sandoval County Fire Department, Bernalillo County Fire Department, Torrance County Fire Department, the Cities of Morarity, Estancia, and Willard as well as several other Santa Fe County Districts.
The Edgewood Fire Department was organized in 1964 with ten volunteers, only hand equipment such as shovels, rakes, and gunnysacks to fight grass fires. The Fire District had undetermined boundaries and a population of approximately 1,500 residents. In 1965, the Department acquired a 1950s model fire engine from the city of Deming and a small two-bay building that served as its station. The building was later expanded into the Edgewood Volunteer Fire Department main station. About a year later a surplus army truck was converted into a tanker and put into service.
Over the next thirty years the department built a new main station, three substations, and added fourteen modern pieces of fire and rescue apparatus. In the 1980s, an ambulance was added and the name of the department was changed to the Edgewood Fire and Ambulance Service. In the 1990s the department was covering 112 square miles and had forty volunteers. A new 228,000 sq. foot Walmart was recently built in the city of Edgewood.
