    • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
    • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
    • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
    • Stay home when you are sick.
    • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
    • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

The City of Mesa Park Rangers oversee nearly 70 parks, 110 retention basins, City of Mesa Cemetery and several sports complexes and fields.  Park Rangers are responsible for a number of tasks within the city limits, including assisting park patrons, patrolling park facilities to deter unwelcome or unauthorized park activities, and act as a liaison between parks, police and fire departments.  Park Rangers also respond to citizen’s concerns, and educate the community in proper park use, natural resources, wildlife and fishing.

The Park Rangers also monitor, warn and enforce the park rules to ensure the safety and security of park patrons, as well as the proper usage of all parks resources.  Park Rangers have authority to give verbal warnings, issue written warnings, issue criminal/parking citations, and/or eject persons from the park for park rule violations.
