Community Programs

From CPR Classes & LifeJacket Loan Programs to our Vial-of-Life Project, the Ebbetts Pass Fire District offers many beneficial programs for our community.

Fire Prevention

Fire prevention starts with you. Creating a "defensible space", having functioning fire extinguishers & smoke detectors, campfire safety and much more.

Emergency Response

With four fire station locations, the Ebbetts Pass Fire District is ready to respond to fire and medical emergencies throughout our district at any time.

EPFD Commitment to OUR communities

Our commitment to the communities of the Ebbetts Pass Fire District goes beyond responding to emergency situations. As our Mission Statement says; The Ebbetts Pass Fire Protection District shall provide for life and property safety from the threat of fires, medical emergencies, and hazardous materials release. This will be accomplished through planning, prevention, education, incident mitigation and appropriate application of technology.

Message From The Chief

Chief Mike Johnson - s2

It is an exciting time of the year here in Ebbetts Pass Fire District with so many residents and visitors enjoying all our beautiful area has to offer from stunning views to summer outdoor recreation such as fishing, camping, hiking, bicycling, and special events. As an organization we will be participating in the annual Arnold Independence Day Parade on the 1st of July, then joining our very own Ebbetts Pass Firefighters Association for a community BBQ in Oak Circle that afternoon. We hope all of you will join us.

As always, our core mission is the safety of our community and visitors. One of the programs we have here at Ebbetts Pass Fire District that helps us meet our mission is the “Life Vest” Program. If you need to borrow a life vest for a day of water activities in our area, come by our  Station 1, 1037 Blagen Road.

Along with the summer activities, we are challenged with the threat of wildfire season. Please be extra cautious this fire season with any ignition types such as outdoor cooking, warming fires, and no fireworks of any kind. Defensible space is critical for defending your home and the spread if fire occurs–thank you to all the community members who have completed their clearing. 

Fire Chief  Mike Johnson
