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 do not possess current firefighter qualifications, almost every year we run a training program (the "Fire Academy"). Recruiting for our 2019 Fire Academy is closed. Please monitor our website for announcements regarding future Fire Academies.
