911 Emergency Calls

The Bagdad area will be switching to the 911 system February 8th at 09:00! The advantage of this is callers receive pre-arrival instructions from an Emergency Medical Dispatcher certified call taker and triple location verification through ANI/ALI, satellite imagery GPS location, and cell tower triangulation.

The state-of-the-art computer aided dispatch software allows for cell phone tracking, radio channel merging, and reverse 911.  This alarm room is staffed with a minimum of 11 dispatchers at all times.  These dispatchers receive 13 weeks of training and are all compliant with NFPA 1720: Standard for Organization and Deployment of Fire Suppression Operations.

Questions can be directed to the Bagdad Fire Station’s non-emergency number 928.633.6590.

Middle Ages Tournament – Estrella War

Feb. 23-29 at Schnepf Farms in Queen Creek

For more than thirty years now members of the Society for Creative Anachronism, Inc. (SCA, a non-profit educational organization dedicated to recreating the Middle Ages) and friends have gathered once a year in the sun-kissed lands of the Kingdom of Atenveldt (Arizona). Estrella War is one of the oldest and largest events held in the SCA. Its purpose: to embark in the fun and frivolity of a week of medieval style camping, pageantry, combat & weaponry skills, arts & sciences including classes & demonstrations… and of course gather in the camaraderie of friends old and new who share in the diverse interests of middle ages life.

Is this like the Renaissance Festival?

It’s better! Unlike a Renaissance Festival, where performers are paid to entertain attendees, the SCA is a re-enactment group where the people attending participate to learn and have fun (no one is paid to attend the event)! Attendees at Estrella War should dress in the clothing and armor of the Middle Ages and Renaissance, and have the opportunity to take part in activities that feature middle ages style tournaments, arts exhibits, classes, workshops, dancing, feasts, and more. This provides seven days of middle ages activities for individual attendees, as well as a wonderful opportunity for other educational organizations, schools, and home school groups to learn about life, activities, and arts in the Middle Ages.

Do I have to be a member of the SCA to attend Estrella War?

No! People with an SCA membership pay a discounted entrance fee, but you do not have to be a member of the SCA to attend Estrella War. However, if you intend to stay and camp at the event (be there for more than a visit for the day), you should come prepared to be a participant in an historical re-creationist event. It is preferred that you make your best effort at wearing middle ages style clothing (not modern clothing) during the time you are at the event. If this is your first time attending, talk to your local group before attending Estrella War about receiving loaner garb for the event.
