A call to the community for resources

Black Forest Fire Rescue is looking to partner with community members who have equipment that may be deployed during a disaster. After the fire of June 2013, it became apparent that many folks wanted to assist and had their own equipment, but there was not a plan in place to use those assets.

Black Forest has faced many issues in the past, including the fire, blizzards, floods and others. With the cooperation and support of the board of directors, the chief and many community members, we are looking to have a plan in place should another emergency occur.

If you have equipment that could be deployed and you are willing to operate that equipment under the authority of the fire department, please contact Chief Bryan Jack at Fire Station 1. He can be reached at 495-4300. 

Details of the Action Plan are being worked out with input from the department and community members who may want to participate.

If you need us, can we find you?

Many Black Forest homes have no house numbers or numbers that are hard to see, especially in rain, snow, or smoke. If you need to improve your numbers, you can get these simple high-visibility house number signs at Station One.

The numbers are 4 inches tall, reflective, and installed on both sides of the post. They are designed to take an impact of over 60 MPH and bounce back. The cost is $25.00, installed. If you lost your home in the Black Forest Fire, your sign is FREE, and we will install it for you. Order your sign by calling Station One at 495-4300, or stop in to sign up. Payment can be made at the station or arrangements can be made to collect on installment at the home (exact amount please).

These number signs are not required but can help our members find you quickly when minutes matter.
