The full-time Fire Crew—the three paid firefighters employed by the Four Mile FPD—was founded in 2009, and has been providing daytime emergency response coverage and grant-funded wildfire mitigation services to our district since that time.
The crew has extensive experience in wildfire response and administers numerous disaster prevention and recovery programs. The Fire Crew has secured and managed roughly $1.3 million in grant programs, including a staffing grant that provided for the Fire Crew’s salaries for the majority of the crew’s existence.
From the fender bender in Boulder Canyon to the major flood and wildfire disasters, the Four Mile Fire Crew serves our district with dedication and professionalism.
The Fire Crew’s training and experience in all-hazard emergency response allow them to easilystep into leadership roles during emergency situations of almost all type, scale and complexity, and integrate effectively with our volunteer resources and other emergency response agencies to save lives and preserve property.
Our three paid firefighters are qualified as structure firefighters, engineers, wildland firefighters (certified in leading crews and serving as engine captains), and medical responders (EMT and EMR).
Other areas of specialization include rescue ropes and knots, low-angle rescue, swift water rescue, search and rescue and extrication techniques.
Non-emergency areas of focus for the Fire Crew include response training for our volunteer firefighters, wildfire mitigation (contact that Fire Crew about grant-funded mitigation opportunities), fire safety public education, and preventative maintenance and repair of our life-saving equipment and apparatus.
