Public Invited To Ceremony And Reception At Fire Station
Join officials on January 27 to mark the transition of fire services from the Town of Estes Park to the Estes Valley Fire Protection District
On January 27 at 3:00 p.m., community members are invited to attend a ceremony and reception at the Dannels Fire Station, 901 North Saint Vrain Ave., to signify the transition of fire services from the Town of Estes Park to the Estes Valley Fire Protection District (EVFPD). Town Trustees and staff, EVFPD board members and staff, as well as Fire Services Initiative Committee members will be present to mark the occasion.
Commenting on the newly-formed district, Estes Park Mayor Bill Pinkham said, “Everyone worked hard to make the fire district a reality.” Pinkham continued, “This is a great example of a collaborative effort that benefits the entire community.”
The Town of Estes Park officially transferred responsibility for fire services to the EVFPD on January 1, 2010. The Town transferred all personnel, equipment and supplies to the EVFPD, and will lease the Dannels Fire Station to the district free-of-charge. The EVRPD is composed of a portion of unincorporated Larimer County and the Town of Estes Park, encompassing a 66.3 square-mile area.
