Apply to join our new RESERVES program

The Estes Valley Fire Protection District will be instituting a Reserve Firefighter Program to support the firefighters in various areas. If you have ever wanted to help the fire department, but don’t have the desire or time to commit to becoming a certified firefighter, then don’t miss out on this unique opportunity. It is becoming harder and harder to find individuals who can commit to the rigorous training and time commitment to be a volunteer firefighter. But many of the support roles of firefighting can be accomplished without becoming a certified firefighter. The EVFPD will be hosting an informational meeting on Wednesday, Aug. 20th at 6:00 PM to explain the Reserve Firefighter Program and go over the many tasks that could be completed by people like you. Providing these support roles frees up the certified firefighters to do their jobs. Interested individuals can contact Fire Chief Scott Dorman, at the Dannels Fire Station, 901 North Saint Vrain Ave, Estes Park, (970) 577-0900 or email to sdorman@estesvalleyfire.org.
