Seal of Approval


Community Risk Reduction

West Metro Fire Rescue’s Community Risk Reduction efforts involve fire investigations, fire inspections, and fire code enforcement within our district. The Life Safety Division also investigates citizen complaints regarding fire and life safety hazards and enforces compliance with county burning regulations.

We work with the National Fire Protection Association, the National Fire Sprinkler Association, the International Code Council, local government and other agencies to ensure our staff members are up to date with their knowledge and skills regarding policy, engineering, technology and best practices in the fire service.


Please feel free to contact us at (303) 989-4307 for more information regarding these programs.

West Metro Fire Rescue serves as a safety advocate

West Metro Fire Rescue serves as a safety advocate and resource for the owners, staff and residents at Senior Residential Facilities. We offer programs and information to all parties in an effort to increase safety for the people who live and work in assisted living, nursing homes and combination facilities.

When considering a facility for yourself or a loved one, make sure you fully understand their policies and services. Use a checklist to rate each facility you consider. Pay close attention to their emergency operation procedures, emergency relocation plan including transportation to the evacuation site and their lift assist policy.

West Metro Fire Rescue will help facilities develop and review their Emergency Operation Plan and Fall Prevention Programs. Feel free to use this Emergency Operation Plan template and this Fall Prevention Program Resource to help implement a program for the residents at your facility
