KINGMAN –Deputies with the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office has issued a warning to Wayne Eder that he is no longer welcome on Northern Arizona Consolidated Fire District property.


Eder, former NACFD chief, was informed that he has been trespassed from fire stations and other NACFD buildings.

Eder has made it clear that he thinks he is still chief because he believes the May 23 meeting and vote by the NACFD governing board terminating his employment were both illegal.

Board of Directors Chairman Jim Bailey and interim Chief Tim King lodged a complaint with the sheriff's office, reporting that Eder visited the station on Butler Avenue on May 30.

Bailey told a deputy that when directed to leave, Eder said he was not fired legally and that he would be returning to work soon to resume his duties.

The sheriff's office served Eder notice on May 31 that he was not to trespass upon NACFD property. Eder wrote the words “under duress” next to his signature on the trespass warning form.
