Behind The Badge

In our latest Behind the Badge profile, we spend some time with ACFR Captain Frank Rotello. From being one of many Rotello’s in our department, to an appearance in the Colorado Firefighter calendar, to an expertise in wine, Captain Rotello has a story to tell!

Revital Battle of the Badges

Revital Colorado recently held their first annual Battle of the Badges hockey game to benefit this fantastic organization that supports all First Responders. The event was a huge success, with Fire beating Police 8-2. (Although we are pretty sure the Police team will have something to say about this next year.) If you didn’t make it to the event, here’s a recap, including mic’ing up the fire team’s captain, ACFR firefighter Brandon Donner. He was the perfect person to mic up because, well, he loves to talk…

Station 11 Drone Tour

Our drone features continue with a look at Station 11 located at 70th and Pecos. The state-of-the-art fire station was built with our district’s growth in mind and gives our firefighters the ability to respond to calls faster and reach even more of our citizens. Check out Station 11 from a different point of view….

Safety and Medical Vehicle Video-check out our new SAM tuck!”

You may see our new safety and medical vehicle driving around our district, and notice it’s not the traditional red or white that is associated with fire departments. The police responder F150 went into service this summer and runs out of Station 11. If you did not know….the SAM officer is available 24/7 to support our firefighters. They respond on high acuity medical incidents to assist crews, act as a medical officer at multi casualty incidents, and most importantly respond to critical incidents as safety officer to make sure our firefighters get home safely.

ACFR Behind the Badge

Our ‘Behind the Badge” series continues with a profile of Engineer Joe Ciancio. Joe has been a firefighter for nine years, grew up in this community, and has a very unique background coming into the fire service. Take a look…

Cooking w/ ACFR

Our “Cooking with ACFR” series continues as we stop by Station 13 and check in with the B shift crew. While we have some amazing cooks here at ACFR, Firefighter Ben Ramos and his crew explain its not just about the meal, it’s also about “crew-nity.” What in the heck is crew-nity? You’ll have to watch to find out…
