Stations & Apparatus

The District maintains two stations and a diverse fleet of apparatus to support the range of services we provide. We strive to replace our heavy apparatus at 20 years of age and support vehicles at 10 years of age, in line with industry standards. Retired apparatus are sold or donated, depending on what is most appropriate. 

​Effective January 1 2020, all apparatus numbers have been updated to reflect a county-wide numbering system. Estes Valley Stations 71 and 72, and apparatus will be numbered based on their stations. This numbering aids our units when operating on scene together, responding across district lines, and simplifying radio communications. 

Many of the below photos were taken by 5280 Fire. You can find additional pictures of our apparatus on their website. They also have a section for all of our retired apparatus. Thanks to 5280 Fire for maintaining this archive!
