Operations Division

The Operations Division of Frederick Firestone Fire is a multi-faceted group.

The primary responsibility of this group is to answer emergency response requests within the towns of Frederick and Firestone, however this group does a lot more behind the scenes.

Firefighters (either Career or Reserve) are highly trained in firefighting skills, Emergency Medical Care, and Specialty Rescue Techniques.

Firefighters initially complete 280-hours of firefighter training and over 300-hours of emergency medical training.  Every three years, each firefighter has to complete 96-hours of continuing education to maintain their Colorado State Firefighter certification and to maintain their Emergency Medical Services certification.

The minimum standards that are maintained by Frederick Firestone Fire are Colorado State Firefighter I, EMT-Basic, and Hazmat Operations Level.  While this is the current minimum level, several members within our Department are Colorado State Firefighter II, Colorado State Fire Officer I, and Colorado State Driver Operators.

As well, our Department requires that at least two firefighters on each shift are trained as Paramedics. This training offers Advanced Cardiac Life Support when a fire truck/engine/ambulance arrives at a medical emergency. Our service goal is to provide emergency services within 5.5 minutes within the district. Each firefighter, while assigned or by volunteering their time during a 24-hour shift, will partake in vehicle operational checks and inventories, at least two hours of physical fitness, conduct Fire Safety Inspections, provide fire station tours to the community, inspect Child Safety Car Seats, and complete required daily FIRE or EMS training.
