Spring Slash Collection Dates Announced *updated with new dates*
Last night, the Estes Valley Fire District Board unanimously adopted Resolution 17-02 in regards to sprinklers in vacation homes. The District understands and appreciates the compromise that is being made to increase safety for our visitors while simultaneously attempting to avoid putting an increased financial burden on owners of rental properties.
However, it is the District's position that the safety benefits of requiring sprinklers in all newly licensed vacation rentals/small hotels would be in the best interest of our visitors, firefighters, and our community. The District is not advocating retroactive application of these types of requirements in existing vacation homes already licensed.
Ultimately, code adoptions are done through the Town Board and Larimer County Board of County Commissioners. This resolution only serves as a statement of opinion from the Fire District.

Red Flag Warning
The Estes Valley Fire Protection District will now display a red flag on the Smokey fire danger sign at 901 N Saint Vrain Ave when there is a Red Flag Warning in our area. A Red Flag Warning means that conditions are ideal for wildland fire combustion and rapid spread. This warning is posted when critical fire weather conditions are either occurring or imminent. Conditions that contribute to a Red Flag Warning are dry vegetation, low humidity, and high winds over a period of time.
Join Our New RESERVES Program
The Estes Valley Fire Protection District will be instituting a Reserve Firefighter Program to support the firefighters in various areas. If you have ever wanted to help the fire department, but don’t have the desire or time to commit to becoming a certified firefighter, then don’t miss out on this unique opportunity. There are many firefighting support roles that don't require becoming a certified firefighter. Interested individuals can contact Fire Chief Scott Dorman, at the Dannels Fire Station, 901 North Saint Vrain Ave, Estes Park, (970) 577-0900 or email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
