Message from the Chief of the Department

The Franktown Fire community and area has changed a lot since our founding in 1963. Through all the change, we have never lost sight of what our purpose is for the community. We will continue to strive to always deliver the highest level of professional emergency response to the community. We are very aware that going forward, that our community and area will continue to change and present us with greater challenges, we will continue to meet those challenges with the same hard work and dedication that is the foundation of our department. We fully understand that our community is counting on us to be there when called upon to serve.

 Our organization is committed to always looking for ways in which we can improve our service while doing so in a cost-effective manner. Our members shall strive to maintain their professional approach to service by constantly bettering themselves through training and preparation. Our partnering agencies are very important to us and the service we provide to all the citizens. We shall continue to maintain and strengthen those relationships.
