Fire Protection Services
ICFPD’s fire protection services is staffed with over 40 firefighter’s responding out of five stations located strategically throughout the district. Our volunteer firefighters are trained and certified to meet State of Colorado Firefighter I and many are certified as State of Colorado Firefighter II. Certification requires over 300 hours of volunteers time with continuous training each week to maintain proficiency.
The five ICFPD fire stations are equipped with apparatus that respond to structure fires, vehicle fires, auto accidents, Wildland fires, rescues and numerous other medical and trauma calls each year.
In our current fleet we have five engines, three tenders, two rescues, two brush trucksand 3 advanced life support (ALS) ambulances. As we live in the foothills with extreme terrain and weather our entire fleet is 4×4 capable.
Our fire engines have 600 gallon tanks with a least 1200 gallons per minute (GPM) pumps. Two of our engines are Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) engines with the ability to “pump and roll” which are especially suited to road, driveway and off-road conditions across ICFPD.
The majority of our district is not equipped with hydrants or water cisterns we need tenders to transport water to the fire. Our tenders carry 2000 gallons of water along with a 4000 gallon portable pond.
Our brush trucks carry 400 gallons of water with a 150 gallon per minute (GPM) pump and are “pump and roll” capable. These extremely maneuverable trucks are capable of getting into the remote areas and difficult terrain in the Wildland Urban Interface.
Our two rescue trucks are able to support structure and vehicle fires, motor vehicle accidents and extrications, hazardous materials and rescue calls. They can also support mass casualty incidents and large Wildland fires. The rescue trucky carry rope rescue gear, extrication tools, an air system for breathing tank refill, and emergency medical supplies.
