Chief's Message

2024 has begun with a bang!  Snow storms and cold weather seem to rule the day, so we at the DFPD encourage you to drive safely on the icy roads, and to plan for adverse weather when out driving.  It never hurts to include some extra gloves, scarves, warm hats, and blankets in your vehicles, just in case.

We are beginning to implement our rotational plan for apparatus replacement and look forward to the May arrival of the new ambulance that we ordered in 2022.  We'll post an update when it gets here, and we welcome you to come to the station and give it a look-see!  The next items on our replacement plan include a new fire rescue truck, which will take five years to complete (due to back orders), and a new squad vehicle.

Our meeting room has had an increase in booking, with lots of great comments about the kitchenette addition. 

We look forward to continuing our service to the De Beque community, the surrounding district area, and the other nearby communities that we may be called upon to assist.  Please contact us if you have any concerns, comments, or questions.  We are here to serve you!  Thank you for your support!
