I am excited to announce the completion of the full services contract to unify the Tri-Lakes Monument Fire Protection District and the Donald Wescott Fire Protection District. 2022 continues to be a busy year navigating all that is required to merge our two organizations. Much of what we continue to do is occurring behind the scenes.

Residents will see no interruption in service. In fact, service will improve with decreased response times and an increase in the number of firefighters and EMS professionals responding to your emergency.

We will also see an improved economy of scale by avoiding the cost of building a new fire station, the need to purchase specialty resources, and the duplication of administrative costs.


As you navigate through our website, we hope it reflects our organizational values of:

Character | Connection | Commitment

Our firefighters are always ready – day or night – dedicated to serving the citizens of our communities and beyond with character, connection, and a commitment to excellence.

Whether a medical aid, fire, natural disaster, or other calls for service, our firefighters come highly trained and knowledgeable to handle your emergency.

As Fire Chief, I could not be more proud of our men and women that have heeded the call to serve. Their selfless commitment is modeled in their daily actions.

Thank you for visiting. Please let us know how we can serve you better.
