Falcon Fire Protection District (FFPD)

New wildfire firefighting team 

News release 

On July 18, the Pikes Peak Fire Chief’s Council held an event to introduce the Pikes Peak Mutual Aid Type 6 Strike Team. The team will consist of 5 Type VI fire engines (brush trucks) from several fire agencies, along with a strike team leader (battalion chief), and be available anywhere in El Paso County during wildfires and brush fires. According to a news release, “Without this collaboration, mutual aid responses to fires could take longer to dispatch which would cost precious time. … This new system will improve efficiency and increase safety for both firefighters and communities throughout El Paso County.”

The Waldo Canyon Fire and Black Forest Fire were two of the most devastating fires in Colorado. “Time is of the essence in wind-driven wildfires in the wildland-urban interface. The Pikes Peak Fire Chief’s Council has diligently worked together to refine the process for a faster response to incidents no matter the location in the county.”

The following firefighting agencies are part of the collaboration of the Pikes Peak Fire Chief’s Council. 

  • Black Forest Fire Rescue
  • Cimarron Hills Fire Department
  • City of Fountain Fire Department
  • Colorado Springs Fire Department
  • Falcon Fire Protection District
  • Monument Fire District
  • Security Fire Department
