Education Classes
Rocky Mountain Fire can arrange community education classes on topics such as CPR, first aid, fire extinguisher training, fire prevention, and child safety seat inspection/installation.  We will also schedule ride-alongs and station tours for our residents.

Home Inspections
Rocky Mountain Fire provides home inspections to identify any potential fire hazards and suggest corrections and solutions.

School Education
Rocky Mountain Fire delivers fire prevention education to the schools in our fire district with curriculum developed for grade-specific needs.  During the annual National Fire Prevention Week, we strive to visit every public elementary school with fire prevention presentations.  Our programs can include fire extinguisher training, practice 911-calling, fire prevention rule-learning through the use of story telling, escape route planning, and visiting the fire truck and spending time with the firefighters.  For older students in Middle and High School, curriculum are developed to address specific school requests and have included fire investigation, career days, first aid, and CPR in the past.  We also take pride in actively participating in school safety drills, helping out with crossing guard duty when possible, and assisting our schools however we can.

Reflective Signs
To assist first-responders in locating residences quickly and accurately, every building should have a reflective address marker mounted on a non-combustible pole at each driveway entrance.  Click Here to obtain an order form.

Vial of Life
The vial of life program gives rescuers immediate access to vital health information for you and your family during an emergency in your home.  We provide you with all necessary materials, which include a form, a bottle for storing your form, and a sticker to alert rescuers that the vial is present in the centralized location in your home.  The bottle goes in your refrigerator door so we know where to find it.  Rescuers are alerted to the vial of life by a sticker we provide for you to place on your front door.  To participate in the vial of life program, we will make an appointment to come to your home with the necessary materials.

Safe Haven for Newborns
Colorado's Safe Haven for Newborns law allows a parent to hand over an infant, up to 72 hours old, to an employee at any Fire Station or Hospital, with absolutely No Questions Asked.  It is important to understand that the new law requires that if you wish to use the program, you must leave your baby with a person.  As of March 2016, 51 babies have been safely relinquished in Colorado. Nationwide, there have been more than 3,000 babies saved by Safe Haven laws.
