We at Security Fire are deeply saddened by the tragic end of Gannon Stauch’s short life.   Our staff, along with so many of you in the community, were involved in the local search for Gannon. 

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought change and uncertainty to the world and our community.  Governor Polis has issued a STAY AT HOME order, signaling even more changes to our lives and daily routines.  As change can be difficult, I encourage you to look to each other for support.  The Colorado Mental Health helpline is a free service available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to talk confidentially to a professional.  They can be reached tollfree at 844-493-8255 to talk or text “TALK” to 38255 to have a text conversation.  It is important that we look after our physical and mental health.  We strongly urge you to stay active and to enjoy all Colorado has to offer during these times, and of course adhere to all social distancing guidelines when shopping or out and about.

The staff at Security Fire Department is available to serve you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week   We dutifully serve our community and strive to exceed your expectations.  After every call for service, our crews are following the disinfection protocol set forth by CDC and CDPHE to ensure our apparatus are safe and clean for not only our safety but that of the community.

We are looking forward to our annual 4th of July pancake breakfast.  This has been a tradition in our community for many years and one where I enjoy meeting our community members. 

We have received our newest type 6 wildland truck.   This apparatus will be available for local needs as well as when we are called to national fires to assist. The Security Wildland Fire Team has been deployed to fires in serval different states.

Spring is here and the weather has begun to heat up.   As a friendly reminder, please pay close attention to fire danger warnings and always be fire smart. We hope things begin to get back to a strong sense of normal for everyone during this quarter. Please remember to remain calm in these uncertain times, we as Americans will persevere as we always have by working together!
