Hudson Fire Rescue
We would like to welcome you to Hudson Fire Protection District, where we proudly serve the communities of Hudson & Lochbuie!
The Hudson Fire Protection District provides fire services to approximately 96 square miles in southern Weld County Colorado. We are committed to our customers, and it is our goal to provide quality fire suppression, fire prevention, life safety, and property conservation to the Town of Hudson, the Town of Lochbuie, and the surrounding rural area. We also provide basic life support emergency medical services within our area.
We have 3 stations to serve you. Station 1 in Hudson and Station 3 in Lochbuie are staffed around the clock, every day of the year. There are 3 firefighters at each station; giving the district 6 full-time paid firefighters at all times, day and night to respond to an emergency. From the time of dispatch to the time out the door to an emergency takes us 2 minutes, no matter the time the call comes in. This is the standard we maintain and practice. The 3 man firefighter crews work 48 hours on (2 days), and have 96 hours off (4 days); for a total of 3 shifts that rotate weekly. The average hourly work week for your firefighters is 56 hours a week. Firefighters live, sleep, eat, respond to calls, and train during their 2 day tour at their assigned firehouse.
Station 2 houses additional equipment and apparatus and is not staffed. Please feel free to come by and visit with your firefighters! They would be happy to show you around and answer any questions you may have about their careers and the district.
Hudson Fire Protection District currently has 20 paid employees: 1 fire chief, 1 training captain, 6 Lieutenants, 2 Engineers, 10 career firefighters, and 1 district administrator. There are also 8 volunteer firefighters, who supplement the career staff. The district is governed by a Board of Directors, and meet at station 1 on the 3rd Tuesday of every month. The meetings are open to the public and begin at 6:00pm.
When not responding to calls for service, the career staff trains in fire, rescue, and medical curriculums. Your fire department also trains in fire investigations, water rescue, technical rescue, and fire prevention. This assures our customers are receiving the best their fire department has to offer. Hudson Fire is also responsible for annual fire inspections conducted on current businesses and new businesses throughout the district.
We could not do our jobs without the support of our citizens that live, work, and play in our district. Thank you for your support as we continue to fulfill the needs of our rapidly growing district!
