Fire Chief’s Welcome Message

On behalf of everyone at the Denver Fire Department, let me welcome you to the Denver Fire Department’s Web page. The Denver Fire Department is comprised of full-time staff, part-time staff, and volunteers who are highly capable and proud of their profession. The Denver Fire Department serves more than 13,500 residents and visitors and has been in service to you over 60 years.

Our fire department is charged with the responsibility of providing professional and efficient fire suppression, emergency preparedness, emergency medical services, fire prevention, and public education to the public that lives in and commutes through our district every day. The goal is to provide the highest level of service in the most efficient manner possible; to constantly safeguard and preserve life and property against the elements of fire and disaster through effective preparation, training and education; and to respond to all emergencies in a safe yet timely manner with sufficient resources to address the situation.

The fire department and its outstanding team are key to providing community safety. We accept and embrace this challenge with vigor and commitment. As the world evolves and our district grows, our mission also evolves to one that is not simply confined to “traditional” fire services. Therefore, our mission statement reflects a corresponding need for our fire department to think and operate in an all-encompassing manner.

Once again, welcome to our web page, and please contact me or my staff if you have any additional questions or have suggestions on how to improve our services to you.

Thank You,

Jay Flynn
