Fire Chief’s Desk

Last year our newsletter highlighted all the good work that has been done by our highly dedicated volunteers and staff over the past 10 years, on behalf of the community we all serve so proudly. So you can get to know our board leadership, on page 2 of this issue we’ve provided you a picture and short biography for each of our current board members. We would love for you to get to know us better, many of us have been in service at Grand Lake Fire Protection District for years! We are grateful that the Board and staff are supported by our large group of 27 volunteers and part time assistance.

I would like to extend an invitation to the community to visit the firehouse for a tour or drop by one of our board meetings, regularly scheduled the second Wednesday of each month at 6:30pm. We would love for you to get to know YOUR fire department and understand how your tax dollars are being used as effectively and efficiently as possible.

I believe you will also walk away knowing that you are being protected by a fine group of volunteers and paid staff that truly have this community’s best interest at heart. Please know if you ever have a question, want to address a concern, or wish clarification on a topic you may have just heard through the rumor mill, please contact me at any time. I am proud to be your Fire Chief! My cell number is 970-531-0434.

Thank you for letting us serve………..

Mike Long
