OPEN HOUSE - June 4 2022 from 11:00AM to 4:00PM

FOOD:

  • Hotdogs, hamburgers and vegetable burgers, chips and drinks will be served.

FIRE EXTINGUISHERS:

  • We have received many fire extinguisher donations from area businesses. We will be using these to demonstrate how to use an extinguisher. Attendees will not only learn how to operate an extinguisher, but they can also watch our volunteers using extinguishers on a small, controlled, live fire.

  • Do you have a fire extinguisher in your house? If it has expired, bring it to the open house! You can use it at our demo booth. You can also learn about the different types of extinguishers and find the best one for your needs.

KIDS:

  • The kids can try on some firefighting clothes and helmets and have their picture taken on a fire truck. There will also be some small fun stuff for them to take home.

  • Maybe, if they’re really good, they will get to hold a hose and shoot some water!

INFORMATION:

  • We will have brochures, flyers and youth magazines donated by the Ready, Set, Go program.

    • “The Ready, Set, Go! Program, managed by the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC), seeks to develop and improve the dialogue between the fire service and the residents they serve. The program helps the fire service to reach individuals who live in high risk wildland fire areas – and the Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) – how to best prepare themselves, their families, and their properties against outdoor fire threats.”


  • Also, if you want to help Allenspark Fire find you, you can fill out a Property Information Form.

  • If you don’t already have a large, metal, reflective house number sign (green for Boulder County, blue for Larimer County), you can order one at the Open House.

AFPD VOLUNTEERS:

  • Meet the members, ask questions and get to know a little about them.

AFPD APPARATUS:

  • All our vehicles will be cleaned and ready for your inspection. If you have questions about the apparatus, ask any of our volunteers.

AFPD STATION ONE:

🏟 If you would like a tour of the main AFPD station, ask a volunteer.

CRATE STACKING CHALLENGE:

  • If you feel up to a challenge, try the milk crate stacking challenge. This will utilize harnesses and ropes and have Certified Instructors to make it as safe as possible.

  • Saint Vrain Forest Health Partnership

  • Wildfire Mitigation Partners

  • Boulder and Larimer Sheriff’s Officers

The Allenspark Fire Protection District located in Allenspark, CO is staffed by 28 volunteers. Our response area covers approximately 160 square miles in rural Larimer and Boulder Counties. Special services that we provide in addition to Fire Protection and Emergency Medical Services are Search and Rescue, Camp Inspections, Fire Prevention and Mutual Aid to neighboring agencies. The fire district has mutual aid agreements with neighboring fire departments such as Estes Valley, Lyons, Indian Peaks, LeftHand Canyon, PineWood Springs and the United States Forest Service.

The department operates under a 911 dispatch system through Boulder County Communications. The department uses portable and vehicle radios.

The fire district operates as a special district and all funding for the operation of the fire district is from property tax revenues and donations. The District is governed by an elected board which meets monthly at the main fire station in Allenspark.



Parking

If you are attending an event at Osmun Station (AKA Station One), please do not park anywhere in front of the bay doors (front and back). Emergency vehicles may exit at any time and your vehicle may be damaged as a result. There is also no parking in front of the garage doors at any of our stations.

If you are attending an event next door at The Old Gallery, please do not use any of the parking spaces at the station. We need space for our volunteers to park their personal vehicles before taking an emergency vehicle to an emergency call.

We appreciate your cooperation.
