A Message From the Chief

On behalf of the dedicated men and women of the Boulder Fire-Rescue, I welcome you to our website. Boulder Fire-Rescue Department (BFRD) strives to make Boulder a safe place to live, work and play. BFRD reduces the human suffering caused by fires, accidents, sudden illnesses, hazardous material releases, and other disasters.

I hope you find that it, and the men and women of our organization, exceed your expectations for public service. We continually strive for excellence and always welcome your suggestions on how we might serve you better.
