Lake Dillon Fire-Rescue will strive to deal professionally and effectively with emergencies and hazards to life and property with a commitment to excellence and in the best interest of all citizens and guests of our communities.
Special Districts, like the Lake Dillon Fire Protection District, are funded by property taxes and fees. LDFPD is funded by the taxpayers through their property tax. We attempt to provide the best coverage for our area at the least cost to our taxpayers. We are proud of the services we provide and conscientiously seek ways to improve these services. LDFPD is a career organization. The Department still maintains, however, a volunteer opportunity for interested persons in the Fire Corps, which provides logistical and communication support during extended or large incidents.
Lake Dillon Fire-Rescue offers the community the following services:
- Fire Response and Investigation
- Rescue Response
- Emergency Medical Response
- Hazardous Materials Mitigation
- Wildland Firefighting
- Fire Safety Inspections
- Plan Review Services
- First Aid Training
- Fire Extinguisher Training
- Safety Education
- Community Events
Lake Dillon Fire-Rescue operates response personnel out of three stations:
- Station 2 – Frisco
- Station 8 – Dillon
- Station 11 – Keystone
- Station 10 – Silverthorne (administrative station)
Summit County continues to grow and attract more full-time residents as well as guests. We are also seeing continued increases in the number of vehicles and hazardous materials traveling along the I-70 corridor. With this growth come increasing demands on the services the Fire Department Provides. In order to keep up with emergency response demands, Lake Dillon Fire-Rescue is constantly striving to find more efficient ways of allocating resources. We are currently in the planning process to determine future facility locations.
