Fire Suppression

Fire Suppression / Emergency Medical Services (EMS)

Fire Suppression (SSFR) responds to a variety of emergencies to provide structural and wildland fire suppression, emergency medical services (including ambulance transport service), and high and low angle rope rescue.


Staffing consists of full and part-time personnel. All personnel are trained as firefighters and emergency medical technicians (EMT) with several personnel trained to the paramedic level.

Dr. David Richter is the Medical Director for SSFR. Pre-hospital medical care is provided under the guidance of the Routt County EMS Protocols (PDF).
