Masks Required at FRFR

I hope this post finds you well. As you likely know, the Governor has issued a statewide facemask order. We want to remind you that we require physical distancing and masks for anyone visiting our facilities at Front Range Fire Rescue (FRFR). We believe that the mask order, and compliance in our buildings, helps keep you and our responders safe.

RED Shirt Friday

Today you might notice something new at FRFR. Our crews are wearing red t-shirts instead of our standard blue ones. Why red? Red is worn by many public service agencies to “Remember Everyone Deployed.” We are wearing these in honor of those military service members keeping us safe in the US and abroad. We are also honoring those firefighters among our ranks who are veterans. This is especially timely this week, as one of our firefighters, Ryan Boor, just returned to the firehouse this week from a year-long military deployment.

Look for our crews wearing RED every Friday!
