Copper Mountain Fire Department


Copper Mountain Professional Firefighters are located at the base of Copper Mountain Resort in Copper Mt., Co.


The Copper Mountain Fire Department is dedicated to serving our community through Prevention, Education, Response and Community Involvement.

Today, the Copper Mountain Fire Department has seventeen paid personnel and five part time and 1 volunteer . Career positions include a Chief, Assistant Chief, three Captains, three Engineers, three Paramedics, five Firefighters and a Fire Marshal. They operate on a three platoon system working a 48-on/96-off schedule.   They are supplemented by the volunteers with the on-duty force typically consisting of four to five personnel. Together, they provide fire and advanced emergency medical services to the residents and guests of Copper Mountain Resort.
 CMFD also responds to hazmat, wildland fires, ice rescue, swift water rescue, highway (MVA) and rope rescue calls within their jurisdiction.  They also provide coverage to an area outside the premises covering 136 square miles of largely undeveloped forest including the I-70 corridor west to the top of Vail Pass and east to Officer's Gulch, as well as Highway 91 south of the resort to the top of Freemont Pass.  The Copper Mountain Fire Department works closely with Leadville, Vail, Lake Dillon and Red White & Blue Fire Districts to assist in mutual aid.  The department runs 700-1000 emergency calls per year including medical inter-facility transports with a co-staffed medic unit with Summit County Ambulance Service.
