GOVERNOR TO VISIT ELK CREEK FIRE TO SIGN BILL 14-16

On Thursday, May 15, 2014, Elk Creek Fire Department in Conifer, Colorado will be hosting Gov. John Hickenlooper and members of the Colorado Legislature as Gov. Hickenlooper signs Senate Bill 14-16, a grant program to increase local firefighter safety. The event will begin at 1:30 pm at Elk Creek Station 1, 11993 Blackfoot Road, Conifer, CO 80433.

Bill 14-16 sets aside $3.25 million dollars each year from mineral leasing funds to provide direct grants to Colorado Fire Departments for personal protective equipment (PPE), equipment and training to increase firefighter safety.

Elk Creek Fire Department was chosen to host this event in part as recognition for being a model combination department, representing both career and volunteer firefighters.

The event will be approximately 30 minutes followed by a photo opportunity.

And a the full story can be found in this weeks issue of The Flume on Friday 5-23. I have no idea if the story will be part of this weeks free content, but The Flume can be picked up at many different pay box locations up and down the 285 corridor.
