Allenspark Fire Protection District personnel have been directed by the state of Colorado to NOT disclose information about COVID-19 testing or the results of tests. Any questions from the public regarding who has been tested, how many people have been tested or who or how many have tested positive or negative, will be referred to the appropriate county health department.
Even if we have permission from the individual or family to pass on information to people outside the department about COVID-19 testing or the results of tests, we will not be passing this information on.
Even if we hear a blatantly false rumor, we will not be able to correct it.
Please bear this is mind and do not ask any member of the department for information that we have been forbidden to discuss. We realize that it is difficult for our community not to share information that some may think is vital, but understand that we do not have any choice in this matter.
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 BoulderCounties. 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, LeftHandCanyon, 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.
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.
