Message from the Chief

I am excited to announce the completion of the first step to unify the Tri-Lakes Monument Fire Protection District and the Donald Wescott Fire Protection District. 2022 will be a busy year navigating all that is required to merge our two organizations. Much of what we will be doing will occur behind the scenes.

Residents will see no interruption in service. In fact, service will improve with decreased response times and an increase in the number of firefighters and EMS professionals responding to your emergency.

We will also see an improved economy of scale by avoiding the cost of building a new fire station, the need to purchase specialty resources, and the duplication of administrative costs.

If you would like more information, please visit the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) and the Feasibility Study produced by Emergency Services Consulting International (ESCI).

As you navigate through our website, we hope it reflects our organizational values of:

Excellence | Integrity | Loyalty | Respect | Service

Our firefighters are always ready – day or night – dedicated to serving the citizens of our communities and beyond with character, connection, and a commitment to excellence.

Whether a medical aid, fire, natural disaster, or other calls for service, our firefighters come highly trained and knowledgeable to handle your emergency.

As Fire Chief, I could not be prouder of our men and women that have heeded the call to serve. Their selfless commitment is modeled in their daily actions.

Thank you for visiting. Please let us know how we can serve you better.
