    Well, today was the closing date. It doesn't seem there was too much interest (at least on the forums). Hopefully that's good news for those who did apply. We'll see what happens come May!

    Best of luck and be safe.

    So I see housing is really high out in Colorado. I would be making about 13k more than I make right now but I still don't think I could afford to live out there. Anyone have any suggestions on what new Firefighters do once hired?

    The housing market in Colorado is insane right now. If you want to live close to the department i.e. Lone tree, Parker, Centennial or Greenwood Village it's rea expensive right now. But if you don't mind living farther south or east you can find 'affordable' housing.

    Word on the street was there are in the hundreds of applications.

    Cool, I'll contribute.

    Really by any quantifiable standard. Compensation, Morale, Station condition, Management, Upward Mobility, Training opportunities, Forward leaning thought process, Equipment load outs, Co Workers, Shift schedule, Station Location, Community, Public support, Tax base, Future construction in the area, Top notch tactics, Robust peer support, Phenomenal mechanics, Outstanding Technical Services, really any metric.

    Now I get that every person, from their respective departments, will say the same thing. But I'm a big fan of where I work and who I work with. I also hope that everyone applying will be as great as the people that already work here, and hope everyone that wants to be part of this amazing organization the best of luck.
