COVID-19 Update: While we continue to monitor COVID-19 here in El Paso County, we have made the decision to re-open our Station Community Rooms and reinstate tours and ride along events, as of June 1st.  To ensure the safety of our citizens and firefighters amid concerns related to COVID-19 , we request any individual 12 year of age or older using our community rooms, visiting our fire stations for a tour, and/or participating in a ride along, that has not been vaccinated, to wear a mask to protect themselves and our firefighters that are not vaccinated.  This mask request for individuals 12 years of age or older that have not received the COVID-19 vaccination will continue to be monitored and is subject to change.  Your understanding of our safety concerns and cooperation with this request are greatly appreciated.
