As 2018 has drawn to a close, I would like to stop and reflect on what a great year it has been for our community and Security Fire Department. In 2018 we added a new type 3 wildland apparatus, 2 new ALS ambulances, took several steps towards building fire station 4 in which we are hoping to break ground on in 2019, began a joint recruit training academy with Fountain Fire and Hanover Fire Departments that has been a huge success and will be the new standard for all recruits, responded to multiple wild land fires in Colorado and throughout the nation, and we responded to over 5200 incidents within our community. We are proud to serve our community diligently and with utmost professionalism.
As we begin 2019 I look forward to many new opportunities and another great year of serving the citizens of our community. I wish you all a very Happy New Year, and much happiness and success in 2019. Keep checking back we have many exciting announcements and plans for the New Year.
