As a combination fire department, the Elk Creek Fire Protection District relies heavily on community members who volunteer to serve their community as emergency responders.

Our volunteer responders must meet the same stringent character, training and fitness criteria required of any Colorado professional firefighter or EMT.

If you already possess current firefighter or EMS provider qualifications, live in our district, and are interested in volunteering for Elk Creek Fire, please contact Deputy Chief Jacob Ware (see our Contact Us page).

We are now accepting applications to the 2019 Fire Academy (download an application form here). Applications must be delivered in person by the candidate at our station #1 no later than March 29, 2019. Interviews and physical aptitude tests will be conducted on April 6, 7, 13 and 14, 2019. The Academy will begin on May 4, 2019 at 08:00.
