Did you know that nationally only 4% of career firefighters are women?? Well, not in Berthoud!! BFPD is incredibly proud of the fact that over 20% of our career staff is female, and now they’re famous…featured in a cover story from the Berthoud Surveyor about what it’s like to work in a male dominated field and their experiences at Berthoud Fire. These young women make us all very proud for their service and commitment to the District.
On June 30, 2022 BFPD administered the oath of office for our newest career firefighter, Erin Henry. In attendance were members of Erins’ shift and her parents and brother, who is also a firefighter! We are so glad to add FF Henry to the ranks of our brother and sister firefighters. Good luck FF Henry!!
We are very happy to announce our latest recruitment effort resulted in the hiring of six new reserve firefighters for the District. They come from a variety of backgrounds and experience, all the way from fresh out of academy to more than 20 years of experience and will prove to be an excellent addition to our ranks. Please welcome AJ Nellis, Ryan Oakes, Ryan Shupe, Dylan Wood, and Jeremy Young.
