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).

If you are interested in becoming a firefighter, on most years we run a fire academy to teach all the necessary skills. Details about the 2019 academy will be released soon - please monitor this page for further information.
