The Fort Morgan Fire Department is excited to announce that it has begun the process of creating a Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP).
Creating our CWPP will bring diverse experts together to evaluate wildfire risk in our community. This will enable our Fire Department to increase our ability to effectively and safely respond to wildfires, and to provide resources to homeowners and communities to ensure that they are protected and prepared for wildfires when they occur.
We need your input to make sure that our plan reflects your needs, concerns and opinions about wildfires in Morgan County! Please take the time to complete a brief survey, linked here.
Stay tuned for the announcement of community events to learn more about the CWPP and provide essential input to help the Fire Department complete the best plan possible.
The responsibility of the Fire Department is to respond, upon request, to emergencies and aid citizens at an incident beyond their control, in an effort to prevent or reduce the loss of life or property.
Types of emergencies include medical assists, auto accidents, all types of fires, and hazardous materials spills or leaks. The department responds to an average of 420 calls each year. In addition, the Fire Department seeks opportunities to serve the public by providing public education and fire inspections.
