Ice Rescue at Baker Reservoir

Our crews were recently called to an ice rescue call at Baker Reservoir involving a dog. A 155-pound Saint Bernard named Mumford had gone out onto the ice and fallen into the water. One of Engine 12’s crew members went out onto the ice and pulled Mumford out of the water and brought him safely back to shore to his owner.

Mumford’s owner did the exact right thing by calling 911, staying on the shore, and giving the dispatcher their exact location.   Because of those actions, this was a happy ending to a scary situation.

Please remember these tips to stay safe when it comes to ice:

  • Obey warning signs such as “Danger. Thin ice. Keep off.”
  • Assume ice is unsafe.  With temperatures going from 60 degrees one day to freezing the next, the ice can be extremely unstable.
  • Keep dogs on a leash around bodies of water.  If they happen to get out onto the ice, never go out onto the ice to try and rescue them.
  • Call 911 if a person or animal needs help on the ice. Be aware of your surroundings so you can give the dispatcher an accurate location to find you.

Lithium-ion battery explodes in Adams County fire investigator’s face

Lithium-Ion batteries are everywhere. In phones, children’s toys, in e-bikes, and even the equipment where we work. If they are not properly cared for, stored, or disposed of, there can be serious and dire consequences. Denver7 reported on a story that affected us right here at ACFR.

There are valuable lessons and takeaways from this story in regard to keeping you and your family safe!

Annual Ice Rescue Training

All of our crews have completed our annual ice rescue training just off of 64th and Pecos. This year’s scenario involved a dog going out on the ice, his owner following the dog on the ice, and then falling in. While our firefighters are highly trained in this area, the takeaway is never to go out on the ice. Call 911 immediately and let trained personnel take care of the rescue!

Go Behind the Scenes with Helmet Cam!

In our latest helmet cam feature, our firefighters battle structure fires and conduct unique trainings for our crew. It also includes probably the most exciting helmet cam footage you’ll ever see! You have to watch to find out what it is.

A look back at 2022

2022 was quite a year for ACFR. Our firefighters ran 12,103 overall calls in 2022, which is up 20% from 2021, and up 43% over the past five years! Our EMS calls were up 21% from 2021, and 40% over the past five years as well. 2022 was a busy year, filled with every kind of call you can imagine, training of all types, and being part of the community we serve. This video shows just a glimpse of the year that was….
