Trick-or-Treat Town

Adams County Fire Rescue has hosted Trick-or-Treat Town since 2008, and since 2015, has put on the event along with Hyland Hills Parks and Recreation District. The event was originally built inside the Bay at Fire Station 14, but moved to our new Station 11 at 1675 W. 69th Ave in 2019. The reason for the move was to have more space to accommodate our growing community, and we saw the evidence of this in our first year at Station 11. Almost 2,000 children and parents showed up that night!

The event is free and open to the public for trick or treating. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Please note Trick-or Treat Town has a wheelchair/stroller accessible pathway to the storefronts where candy is handed out.

Breakfast with Santa

Adams County Fire Rescue hosts a free community Christmas event at Station 11 at 1675 W. 69th Avenue. The event is usually two weeks before Christmas. The event began in 2008, and has grown every year. Families from area neighborhoods have a chance to eat breakfast prepared by Firefighters and ACFR volunteers.

Children can have their photos taken with Santa at the free event as well. Breakfast with Santa is open to the public, but children must be accompanied by an adult.

The Giving Tree

The entire ACFR organization participates in the Giving Tree event. Trees with ornaments are put into various fire stations and our administrative building weeks before Christmas. Families in our community write what they would like for Christmas on the ornaments. ACFR members pick the ornaments and buy these presents for our community members with their own money. Weeks before Christmas, Firefighters decorate an engine, and deliver these presents. It’s a memorable night for all!

Operation Freebird

Every year, the week before Thanksgiving, Adams County Fire Rescue takes part in Operation Freebird. The event is put on by the Adams County Sheriff’s Office with generous assistance from many people in the community. Operation Freebird provides a complete Thanksgiving meal for those in need along with health screenings and other community services that are offered. In past years, ACFR has participated in this community event by showing children the value of having smoke detectors in our homes, letting children tour our smokehouse, and also teaming up with Mile High RETAC to teach the community CPR and the use of AEDs.
