Welcome Chief Sunderland

We are excited to announce Stuart Sunderland as our new Fire Chief.  Chief Sunderland, a native of Colorado, has been in the Fire Department for over 30 years. Among his many accomplishments, Chief Sunderland was instrumental in ACFR becoming an Internationally Accredited ISO Class I Fire Department, one of just a handful of departments to achieve this accomplishment in Colorado.  We are excited to see what the future brings with Chief Sunderland!

Cooking with ACFR

Firefighters have long been known to be great cooks. Because these men and women spend many meals together, cooking is taken seriously! We here at ACFR have multiple men and women who are amazing in the kitchen. We realize a lot of people are spending more time at home these days, so we thought we would start up a cooking series hosted by our firefighters. Fire Medic Charlie Koyle kicks things off with his version of Eggs in Purgatory.
