[exerpts]  “On Thursday, December 30th, 2021, our agency was challenged by the events that unfolded during the Marshall Fire in Boulder County.  The immediate response and support from our partner agencies across the State have been incredible, but not surprising.”

“The exemplary level of expertise, compassion and commitment to service your crews demonstrated was greatly appreciated.”

“This time it is our agency that is humbled by the overwhelming response, support, and care provided by your agency when we requested help.”

“The events of the Marshall Fire will live on in many forms for future generations of residents and responders across the nation.  Please know that your agency owns a part of the successful response we had as an emergency response community that day.”

Chad Christian

President, Mountain View Fire Protection District

“On behalf of our Board of Directors, our members, and myself, I would like to thank you for your assistance on the Tiny House Wildland Fire. We greatly appreciate your apparatus and members’ response to this incident.  Without your willingness and availability to help us in our time of need, we could not have had the successful outcome we had with no injuries or structures lost.”

Leo Touzjian

Fire Chief, Allenspark Fire Protection District
