We continue to strive to provide the most efficient and highest quality level of emergency services to our citizens.

In 2017, there were several highlighted purchases made to improve the quality of service provided to the community. The District purchased a 6-acre parcel of land on CR 8 across from Halliburton as a potential future location for Station 3. The site is
serviced with water/sewer from the City of Fort Lupton and will provide improved emergency response to the south area of the District.

An audiovisual screen was installed at the Training Center to replace the white board screen. We purchased two ½-ton 4X4 pickups for Fire Investigations and the Maintenance Division. A committee was developed and purchased emergency bail out kits for all on duty firefighters and 12 Level IIIA ballistic vests were purchased to enhance firefighter safety. The roof at Station 2 and the Training Center was replaced under an insurance claim from hail damage sustained in 2016.

Training Captain Taw Tamlin was promoted to Fire Marshal and Tony Riofrio was hired as the Training Captain. A new employee, Jacob Margheim was added to the position of Maintenance Technician in the Maintenance Division.

Engine 2603, a 32-year old 4X4 apparatus was sold and will be replaced in 2018. Eight new volunteer firefighters were hired and new modern weight room equipment was added to each station weight room. The existing weight station was donated to Stratmoor Hills Fire District in Colorado Springs.
We want to thank the community for their ongoing support and reaffirm our commitment to you by providing the highest level of public safety possible through well-trained personnel, the suitable equipment, and by staffing the appropriate number of firefighters to achieve their mission.
Respectfully Submitted,
Phil Tiffany,
Fire Chief
