Why are we exploring a merger?
We believe combining fire districts would allow us to unite resources in a cost-effective manner to improve services in both communities. Adams County Fire and North Metro Fire already train together, operate on scene together, and collaborate together with other north area fire departments. A merger provides an opportunity to reduce redundancies, capitalize on strengths, improve financial efficiency, and ultimately better serve our communities.
We are only in the initial stages of evaluating and discussing a potential merger between the two fire districts—a process that will occur over the course of several months. Being transparent and maintaining your trust is always important to us. Community input plays a valuable role in our boards’ decision-making process, and we will keep you apprised of ways you can stay informed and provide feedback as we move forward.
Regardless of where this process leads, our commitment to you remains the same. We will continue to provide excellent service to our community, doing all we can to save lives and property, reduce the risk of future emergencies, protect our first responders, and serve as good stewards of your trust in us.
