SRP’s wildfire first responder valued in emergency-response community
When you think of wildfires in Arizona, you may recall Rodeo-Chediski, Wallow or Cedar, the most recent, near Show Low.

Weather balloon rises up to 75,000 feet to help SRP plan summer operations
If you happen to look up around 4:30 p.m. — or, if you’re a morning person, 4:30 a.m. — near SRP’s headquarters in Tempe, you might see a big white balloon taking flight.
But it’s not just any balloon. It’s a weather balloon that helps forecast high temperatures and storms in the Valley — a forecast essential to SRP’s summer operations.
