Mission Statement: The Platte Canyon Fire Department is at the ready with integrity, honor, and respect to preserve and protect life and property when the call comes for any emergency.
Platte Canyon Fire Protection District was formed as a volunteer organization in 1947. In 1980, it was established as a District. In 2006 it became a combination department meaning it's fully staffed 24/7. The District's original mission was to protect homes and businesses from fires. Since that time, our mission has expanded considerably to keep up with our community's incredible growth. Today we provide the community with a wide range of high quality emergency services including structure and wild land fire protection, ALS/BLS medical transport, water & ice rescue, CPR classes, a wildland mitigation program, mutual aid to surrounding departments, training's among the neighboring fire departments and most importantly educational and training programs for the community.
