In the event of an emergency, fire or medical, dial 911 and provide your detailed location and type of incident to the 911 operator. By doing so, you are ensured of an expedient response from trained volunteers and professionals. Not only will our local fire department be responding, but also the 911 dispatcher will be simultaneously dispatching Estes Park Ambulance and mutual aid tones to surrounding fire departments. In critical situations, time is of the utmost importance. By following theses procedures, you will receive the best response and professional care.
The PSFPD is proactive at understanding its community needs and urges you to contact our department for any of the following or related needs you may have. A pre-planned survey of your property can increase our efficiency in serving your special needs in the event of an emergency, option include:
- Defensible space survey - see form at the bottom of this page
- Fire inspections (Business related) “Pre-planning”

- Hearing or visual impairment
- Mobility impaired
Chimney Maintenance – Each year our fire department responds to chimney fires more than once. You should make it a habit to have your chimneys cleaned each fall prior to use. A chimney sweep is much less expensive than a fire or smoke damage. Pay specific attention when you first fire up your stove or fireplace an check all connection points for leaks and pay attention to poor drafting. This may be an indication of blockage somewhere in the pipes.
