Meet your area fire departments that this event supports!
Elk Creek Fire Protection District
Elk Creek Fire Department has 70 volunteers on its staff. Roughly 6,500 homeowners (or 98 square miles of land) are covered by the Elk Creek Fire Protection District.

More at ElkCreekFire.org.



The Elk Creek Fire Department was formed in 1948 by local residents who recognized the need to provide the community with fire protection. Completely volunteer and dependent on donations and using WW II surplus equipment the Department provided a much needed service to the community.

Many changes have occurred over the last 60 years: the change to a taxing entity, modern equipment, four stations, paid paramedics/EMTs, 911, modern radios, but the backbone of the department is still the citizen firefighter. The volunteer that gives of their time to train, maintain and respond. Our entire fire fighting staff, volunteers included, are Colorado State certified Fire Fighters.
