At the Firehouse
What does it mean when we say Rocky Mountain Fire provides ambulance service to its District residents free of out of pocket charge? If a Rocky Mountain Fire ambulance responds to your medical emergency and you live or own a business in Rocky Mountain Fire District whatever portion your insurance does not pay including copays, deductibles and co-insurance will not be billed to you. If you do not have insurance, you will not be billed. Unfortunately, this only applies to Rocky Mountain Fire provided ambulance service. If all our ambulances are on other calls or a further distance away, you may receive care from one of our very capable neighboring fire districts. Their ambulance service will still be holding you accountable for the remaining bill. If you have questions about this service, please contact us directly. www.rockyfire.org

If you are lucky enough to live in a newer home with residential fire sprinklers their maintenance is important to your life safety. Residential sprinklers are designed to activate when the temperature of one sprinkler head gets to 155 degrees Fahrenheit or higher giving the occupants time to get out safely. Only the heads affected by the heat of the fire will activate, keeping the fire small or possibly extinguishing it. Sprinkler heads flow 10% of the water that is flown when we use fire hoses to extinguish the fire making clean up quicker and easier. Sprinkler heads are not activated when your smoke detectors alarm or chirp. If you have a residential sprinkler system please take the time to have your system inspected by a licensed company annually and have repairs made if needed, it may save someone’s life. 

To learn more about residential sprinklers visit National Fire Sprinkler Association
To find a licensed sprinkler contractor visit Fire Suppression System Contractors
