The Golden Fire Department is committed to protecting life, property and business from the effects of fire and disasters. The Golden Fire Department also assists with medical emergencies.
A significant portion of our Mission can be accomplished through fire prevention, education and emergency preparedness programs and, when called upon, we will provide a safe, rapid, professional and compassionate response to emergencies.
In order to deliver the services needed to accomplish our Mission, the fire department is organized into two major divisions:
- Operations & Training – Responsible for the delivery of emergency services including fire, rescue and emergency medical responses. This division is also responsible for achieving and maintaining the skills and expertise required by the firefighters to deliver these services. The Golden Fire Department responds to approximately 300 emergency calls per year.
- Fire Prevention – Responsible for fire inspections, plan reviews, permits, investigation and public education. The fire department conducts approximately 400 property fire safety inspections per year and provides many hours of public education in a variety of areas.
