District Overview

About the District

We’re a full-service fire agency committed to serving our mountain community. As a combination department with approximately 20 career firefighter/medics, 8 volunteer firefighters, 7 wildland fire crewmembers, we respond to medical emergencies, structure and wildland fires, traffic accidents, swift water and ice rescues, HazMat, and more.

We cover an area of 271 square miles in the Colorado Rockies. Three primary highways run near our district that are major HazMat routes. We help protect fundamental water sources, including Roberts Tunnel and twenty miles of the North Fork of the South Platte River.

With a population of roughly 10,500, over a million visitors a year travel to and through our District. In the summer months our population increases about 25%, which significantly increases our call volume.
