Welcome and thank you for visiting our website. We hope you find the information here helpful and informative.
It is an exciting time of the year here in Ebbetts Pass Fire District with so many residents and visitors enjoying all that our beautiful area has to offer. From the stunning views to the summer outdoor recreation activities 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 4th of July, then joining our very own Ebbetts Pass Firefighters Association for a community BBQ in Oak Circle that afternoon.
We will also be celebrating our 50th Anniversary this year! In order to memorialize our special anniversary and share it with our community and visitors we will have an Open House at Fire Station 1, 1037 Blagen Road, on August 1st from 9:00 to 12:00. We hope to have all of our community residents and visitors attend to help us celebrate this special anniversary. We plan to showcase our history, current emergency services, and various other displays along with organized tours of Station 1. Please check out our history on this web page to see the early days of our organization. Please come to help us celebrate!
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 Jacket” Program. This program loans life jackets to those who need one or more for a day of water activities in our area. The Life Jacket Loan Station is located in front of Fire Station 1, 1037 Blagen Road in Arnold.
Along with the summer activities, we are challenged with the threat of wildfire season and with the continued drought the vegetation is dryer than usual resulting in higher potential for wildfires. We ask for your help in being extra cautious this fire season with any ignition types such as outdoor cooking, warming fires, and of course – NO FIREWORKS of any kind. Defensible space is critical for defending your home and any fire from spreading. Thank you to all our community members who have completed their clearing.
We hope to see all of you at our upcoming events!
Respectfully, Michael Johnson, Fire Chief
