We want to share an update on the actions our agency is taking to help protect against the spread of COVID-19, understanding that the health and safety of our staff is essential in continuing our mission.

We will continue to monitor the situation and do all we can to protect our employees and maintain the service level our community has come to expect. Here are a few changes our agency is practicing:
I would like to express Ebbetts Pass Fire District’s gratitude to our community for practicing all the appropriate precautions that will no doubt aid in the containment of COVID-19 and eventually its conclusion. We desire for the safety and good health for you and your families
Fall / Winter Precautions:
As the daylight hours become less and it gets dark earlier, be aware that pedestrians are more likely walking after dark and harder to see. Check your home’s heating system for operation before you need it, and don’t forget to make sure your chimney is clean and flume is open before use.

Check your vehicle’s tires, lights, wipers, and battery condition to see if it is up to the task of winter conditions. Don’t forget warm clothes/blankets in your vehicle as a precaution.
