A New Year and new decade is upon us! I would like to start by wishing everyone a happy new year. 2019 was a magnificent year for the Security Fire Department. In December, we held our annual open house to include having Santa meet with the community. The response from the community was great and we appreciate all who were able to stop in to see our staff and Santa.
In 2019 we added 2 new ambulances to our fleet and are assisting Highway 115 Fire with their medical transport needs.
2020 will bring more changes for our department including new MSA air packs for the crews adding a further dimension of safety for when we enter dangerous environments. We continue to build upon our wildland team to be able to help in our community and also be available to help other communities as we are called upon. The first quarter of this year our department will focus on annual agility testing, wildland refresher courses and preparing for our next South Group Volunteer Academy. In 2019 15 people started the academy with 12 graduating adding to our volunteer positions. Our volunteers are a vital part of our organization. We are truly thankful for those who wish to volunteer after working 40-50 hours a week at their normal jobs then coming to training weekly and helping respond to calls for service.
64 years ago the Security Fire Protection District began service to our community out of one garage with one fire truck. This year we are breaking ground on a 4th fire station to further assist our growing community. We are very excited for what is in store this year and will keep the community posted with more news. As always keep an on Facebook for fire safety tips and reminders!
We strive to minimize suffering, loss of life and loss of property incurred by fire, accidents, disasters, and medical emergencies. Our goal is to provide the best possible emergency services to our community as well as the surrounding area through, education, fire prevention, and the response of highly trained fire and emergency personnel.
Security Fire Department was founded in 1956 as a volunteer department for the Security-Widefield area. As our community grows, so does our fire department. We currently today have 36 paid full time employees along with about 20 volunteers. We have 3 stations staffed 24/7 along with 3 fully staffed ALS ambulances. Security is one of the busiest fire departments in El-Paso county responding to an average of 5400 calls a year.
