Arvada Fire Department

Our 80 volunteer and 82 career firefighters provide 24-hour, full-service response to the 8,000 fire, hazardous materials incidents, swift water and technical rescues, wildland interface fires, and emergency medical calls each year. We were one of the largest all-volunteer fire departments in the country until June of 1999 when we hired of first paid firefighters to cover the district during daytime hours. In December of 1999, firefighters were hired to staffour stations 24-hours a day.
