PFA Volunteer Firefighters_2017

Poudre Fire Authority operates two volunteer fire stations.  Station 9 is located at the south end of Horsetooth Reservoir.  Station 11 serves the area of Redstone Canyon, west of Horsetooth Mountain Park.

These stations are fully staffed by a cadre of volunteers, trained to conduct wildland fire suppression, and provide emergency medical care. They also serve in a support capacity on a variety of other emergency calls, including those involving search and rescue and structure fires, as well as at community and public education events.

How do I become a volunteer firefighter?

Sorry, but we're not accepting volunteer applications at this time (as of August 2018).

What do you expect from volunteer firefighters?

In a word: service. Volunteers are available to respond to emergencies that occur in the area around their respective stations. Volunteers must also spend several hours a week staffing and maintaining the stations and equipment. Of course, this is in addition to the time spent training and learning. PFA expects a lot from our volunteers because the people we serve expect a lot from us.
