Boulder Mountain Fire Protection District is located to the northwest of Boulder, Colorado. The volunteer fire department responds to structure fires, wildland fires, medical emergencies, motor vehicle accidents and other community disasters. This web site is provided by the fire department as both a source of community information about the fire district and as a means of communicating vital information to volunteer firefighters and medical responders.

GEAR needed for Forest Health and Safety

Several years ago we posted a list of equipment items for BMFPD that would enhance our ability to protect the District and better serve our residents, but were beyond our normal budget.  Thanks to the generosity of many residents, we were able to purchase these items.

This year, our Emergency Response Team (also known as the Mitigation Crew) has been incredibly busy, and in the process finds the need to replace some of their equipment (saws, pruners, blowers, trimmers, and related supplies).

Ben Pfohl, who was scheduled to speak at the Fire Safety Sale that got postponed, sent this new treatment document. Since the season is short and he will not be at the FSS in June, we thought it would be good to post the document as a pdf on the BMF website.

Did you know that FOUR district residents have saved their own homes with the extingusher training and/or extinguishers they purchased at the Fire Safety Sale?

If you wonder if you'd be able to operate your current extinguishers in an emergency - or even if they are still operable - then visit the Fire Safety Sale and let our fire department volunteers bring you up to speed.

Happy Holidays from Boulder Mountain Fire Protection District!

Chief Benson thought you might be interested in the construction progress for the department’s new “tender” – the replacement engine for our soon-to-be-retired 1983 Ford Tender #4343.

The new tender, which will carry 2,000 gallons of water and features 4-wheel drive to safely navigate our mountain roads, is being built to our specifications by Pierce Manufacturing out of their Bradenton Florida manufacturing facility.

BMFPD District Residents:

I’m writing this message as Treasurer of Boulder Mountain Fire Protection District and with the approval of Chief John Benson.  A number of residents inquire at this time of year about how they might donate to the Fire Department.  Please note that we are NOT actively soliciting donations – we are most grateful to all District residents for all your support via real estate property tax payments and involvement in the Auxiliary’s various fund-raising events.  That said…

We end up trying to save people who didn’t want to have resuscitation or extraordinary measures taken.

Please, if this could apply to you, take the following steps:
