The Wet Mountain Fire Protection District has seen a steady increase in call load over the last several years. In 2020 we have already seen over 200 calls of service, with a quarter of the year to go. These calls are all answered by a small group of dedicated men and women who volunteer their time to serve their neighbors.

Our team is fortunate enough to serve a community that cares about one another, and we see this compassion yearly in the donations we receive. The funds donated to the district help our
members provide services to the community that we would not be able to cover with funds from our general budget.

The funds from this 2020 campaign will help us provide a better service in two areas. We are in dire need to add and replace SCBA bottles, which are used for breathing air during a fire and hazardous material responses. These bottles are needed to keep our firefighters healthy and ensure they are not breathing any of the known carcinogens or toxic elements that we see on a normal response. We also plan to use some of these funds for community awareness programs that we generally put on, but have not been able to due to COVID precautions.
