Community Wildfire Protection Plan
Steep terrain, large areas of continuous fuels and frequent high fire danger weather conditions make wildfire a significant concern in Jefferson County, Colorado. Both general and specific actions are needed to mitigate wildfire risk and improve ecosystem health. Learn more about the Community Wildfire Protection Plan, which identifies wildland fire issues facing the community and outlines prioritized mitigation actions.
For more information about how to protect your family and property from wildfire contact the Golden Fire Department at 303-215-8886.
Child Passenger Safety Seat Checks
Trained technicians will check your child’s car seat for safe installation. They will educate the parents or guardian how to correctly and safely secure their child in the car seat.
Safety seat checks are free of charge and performed by appointment only. Contact Fire & Life Safety Technician, Kevin Kirby, to schedule a time (303) 215-8886.

Senior Fire Safety
The newest program for our department is our Senior Safety Program. We want the senior citizens in Golden to remain active in our community and continue to lead independent lives. The goal of this program is to assist in that process. We will provide a courtesy safety survey of your home, provide a File of Life and information on its use, make certain your smoke alarms work properly and help you keep your home safe from hazards. We also provide group programs on general home safety for seniors.
Fire Station Tours
Golden Fire Department offers group tours of the station by appointment. The tours include a safety talk, what fire firefighters wear and looking at the fire engines. We do not host birthday parties at the fire station, but we encourage you to schedule a tour for the birthday girl or boy as part of your event.
