A Message from Fire Chief Welch
Greetings and welcome to the Golden Fire Department. Whether you live, work or play in the City of Golden please know that nearly 100 dedicated firefighters and staff are ready to assist you. The mission of our dedicated professionals is to enhance the quality of life for the Golden Community through fire and injury prevention, education and protection of life and property. As you visit our website you will learn about our Combination Fire Department, made up of both volunteer and paid personnel. In our 146-year history, we have seen Golden transition from a gateway to the mining industry, into a vibrant and thriving city that is an economic engine of the State.
We strive to achieve our mission through collaborating with the residential and business communities here in Golden. Additionally, we rely on our regional public safety agencies to provide quality and responsive emergency service to our community with GFD. Our focus is on promoting emergency preparedness, public education and safety, and rapid response to emergencies of all types.
We provide service from two community fire stations and maintain two support facilities, which house reserve fire apparatus. In partnership with American Medical Response (AMR), we contract two ambulances staffed by certified Paramedics who provide advanced life support service for all of our citizens on a daily basis.
The members of the Golden Fire Department are looking forward to serving you. If you have a question, comment or suggestion please contact us any time.
