Serving Our Community Since 1949
In December or 1949, Byers Fire Protection District #9 was founded to serve the community of Byers, Colorado. Originally serving the community as solely a fire agency, Byers Fire has since grown to serve both the medical and fire needs of the community.
The district currently utilizes 27 active members, a combination of paid and volunteer staff. Currently, Byers Fire consists of 2 full-time paid staff, 2 part-time staff and a number of both in-district and out-of-district volunteers. The members of Byers Fire bring a host of experiences and certifications, including Fire, Hazardous Materials, EMT (Emergency Medical Technician) and ALS (Advanced Life Support) certifications.
Involved in the community in all aspects, Byers Fire is here not only for medical and fire emergencies but for general education and community events including CPR and Fire Prevention Week. We work closely with our partnering agencies across the state, to bring the best emergency services to the area that we can.
