WE ARE BERTHOUD FIRE
We have been proudly serving the Berthoud community since 1888. Berthoud Fire Protection District is responsible for fire, EMS, and rescue services within 102 square miles of Larimer, Boulder, and Weld counties.
Berthoud Fire is different. Few organizations our size can claim a prestigious ISO Class 2 rating.
NO ONE in northern Colorado has a more robust Wildland Firefighting program. Our engines and crews regularly deploy to the largest Type 1 and 2 wildfire incidents around the U.S. Berthoud Fire is renowned for our reputation on wildfires in California, the Pacific Northwest and the Southwest.
20% of our staff is female firefighters, more than 2.5 times the national average. We are incredibly proud of our diversity and inclusivity.
80% of our staff started as reserve firefighters.
The District includes portions of an Interstate (I-25) and State (US 287) Highways, an 1100 Acre reservoir (Carter Lake) and spans three separate and distinct counties in the Front Range (Larimer, Boulder, and Weld).
The size of our staff and the District they serve means our people have an immediate and direct impact on the lives of those we protect, and on one another. Berthoud and the Front Range are growing at a record pace, and Berthoud Fire is too. Welcome to our website, and let us know what we can do for you.
